About the Wilkes Amazing Race

The Wilkes Amazing Race combines physical and mental challenges with a host of fun and wacky team competitions. Teams of two will enjoy a county wide adventure, while visiting many of our tourist destinations, with the hopes of winning the ultimate prize!


To enjoy a fun filled day of wacky challenges, brain teasers, and good old competition, while learning more about the amenities our county has to offer. We will end the day with a fun social gathering of food and entertainment.


At the starting line, each team will be given a map that lists 10 pit stop locations in the race. The pit stops will be located throughout Wilkes County. Deciding the order of each pit stop challenge is at the discretion of each team.

Each pit stop will have a challenge that teams must complete in order to receive credit for that pit stop. Challenges may be physical, mental, or both! Each pit stop will be manned with judges that decide when a team has successfully completed the challenge. For each challenge not completed a 1 hour penalty will be added to the teams finish time.

Pit stops may contain a choice between two challenges. Choose the one you think will be the easiest and fastest for your team to complete. Donít forget, fun!

Teams will complete challenges in the order that they arrive. Some challenges may require teams to be delayed until the previous team has completed the challenge. Order of arrival is at the discretion of race staff and volunteers.

A teamís time will be documented when the second teammate crosses the finish line. All teams must finish the race by 6:00pm on the day of the event: Saturday, September 10th.


In addition to a fun filled day of challenges and bragging rights, the top three race finishers will win:

1st Prize: $200 and Trophy
