On May 22, ten teams of family and friends will embark on a race that circles our beloved neighborhood. Along the way, they'll be required to complete a number of tasks, some physically challenging, others testing the mind and spirit (but all lighthearted and mostly just fun). Which team will strategically use the right combination of teamwork, brains, brawn to cross the finish line first? Which team will win the "trophy" and go down in history as the first ever winners of The Heights of Hope Amazing Race?


These questions are waiting to be answered as we begin

The Heights of Hope Amazing Race.
