Danville folk to get gobbling
August 12, 2012 by James
Next Saturday, August 18, the Dantastic Race will take place leaving from the Community Arts Center located at 401 W. Main Street in Danville, Kentucky. Times will be provided at the time of online registration, as they are subject to change.
This is a fundraising activity with the proceeds going towards supporting the arts. During the event, racers will need to register online with three other people to form a team. On the day, participants can expect to run a grueling obstacle course, solve a number of riddles and puzzles, face daunting challenges, and gobble down some strange, but delicious, foods.
Teams can expect to face all types of eating challenges, take on mental and physical feats, and travel throughout the Danville region seeking the finish line for the race. Any team that can raise $500 towards the Arts Center receives a ‘Challenge Bypass’ and the team that comes in first over the finish line receives $500. Funds raised from this event will support the yearly community and arts events program.
Racers are reminded that is an outdoor event and that a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen may be required. Participants should dress appropriately and wear good athletic shoes, as well as arriving early.
Online registration is available and costs $25 per person. Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to promote this obstacle challenge to the residents and surrounding communities. For additional information, please visit the Community Arts Center website or call the art center during normal business hours.
