Looking to explore Philadelphia? Create a team and join the PhilAmazing Race around the city.
The next race is June 18.
The race is a giant scavenger hunt in which teams will compete in a battle of wits and speed to be crowned the winners. Participants create teams of two to four people and race around Center City collecting clues and finding checkpoints.
Teams will only be allowed to travel on foot or by taking public transportation and will be encouraged to use smartphones, the Internet and their smart friends to solve clues along the way.
Most teams typically finish the race in less than four hours and cover about three to four miles in the process.
Check in on race day will begin at 11 a.m. at the Elephant Castle Pub & Restaurant at 1800 Market Street.
The race will begin an hour later and all teams must check back in at 4.
Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.
