Teams racing around Langley May 17

There will be several two-person teams scrambling around Langley on May 17 as they take part in the Langley Race, an Amazing Race-style event being organized by a local woman.

Lora-Lynne Hanley is the organizer.

“Last year I did a race that went along the SkyTrain for my husbands birthday. Everyone loved it so I thought I would do it again,” she said. “It might turn into an annual thing. I do have ideas for at least another two races. It would depend on the interest.”

It’s run on a shoestring, the only funding comes from the entry fees ($50 per person or $100 per team).

“I’m the only one organizing the race,” Hanley explained. “I do have people helping at all the different stops. The challenges do need to be kept secret for the racers. So far, no one knows where they are going.”

Their travels will take them to all corners of this community.

There’s room for one more team. Anyone interested can get details by emailing chyphris@hotmail.com.

Teams of two will set out and have from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to complete seven challenges scattered around Langley. But it’s not all brawn. The race requires brains and brawn.

There’s challenges, and clues and physical tasks to complete.
