Image

The 2014 Amazing Sunrise Rotary Race is just 5 weeks away!  There are plenty of teams signed up but we can always accommodate more!  If you or your company would like to sponsor a team or know of a team that wants to sign-up make sure to do it NOW!  You don’t want to miss out on the $2,000 prize!!

The Amazing Sunrise Rotary Race

Saturday, September 27, 2014 | Shotgun start at 10am

Grab some friends and join us for a day of fun!

Experience the thrill of The Amazing Sunrise Rotary Race, inspired by the popular CBS TV show, in picturesque West Bend, Wisconsin! Unlike a marathon or fun run, The Amazing Sunrise Rotary Race combines challenges that are physical, mental and sometimes require a high degree of creativity. Teams of two to four people scatter around the West Bend area in an effort to solve a variety of challenges in hopes of winning the grand prize. This unique one-day event begins with 60 teams and ends with one team taking home the $2,000 cash prize.

Become a fan of The Amazing Sunrise Rotary Race on Facebook to get the latest updates on the event including news from sponsors and tips from the organizers.

The race will begin at 10am with a shotgun start, all 60 teams will compete in 6 events before reaching the first checkpoint, where almost half of the contestants will be eliminated. The top 32 teams will then complete an additional 4 events in the afternoon before reaching another checkpoint where the final 3 teams will be decided. Were you one of the 57 teams who didn’t qualify…well now comes the twist, one of the previously eliminated teams will be drawn to run in the final leg of the race and have the opportunity to bring home $2000! (All team members must be present to qualify.)

Watch out for roadblocks, detours and intersections…you never know where one might pop up.

There will be food, beverages and entertainment at the Regner Pavilion where your family and friends can join us to catch legs of the race and watch the finale live!

Must be 21 or older to compete
