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.
â€œLast 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,â€ she said. â€œIt might turn into an annual thing. I do have ideas for at least another two races. It would depend on the interest.â€
Itâ€™s run on a shoestring, the only funding comes from the entry fees ($50 per person or $100 per team).
â€œIâ€™m the only one organizing the race,â€ Hanley explained. â€œI 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.â€
Their travels will take them to all corners of this community.
Thereâ€™s room for one more team. Anyone interested can get details by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teams of two will set out and have from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to complete seven challenges scattered around Langley. But itâ€™s not all brawn. The race requires brains and brawn.
Thereâ€™s challenges, and clues and physical tasks to complete.
