DANVILLE’S AMAZING RACE - postponed

Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus, the Danville Amazing Race will be postponed until further notice.

It’s a race around Downtown Danville with your three fastest friends for the third annual Danville Amazing Race!

Teens in sixth through twelfth grade can sign up a team of four people for an Amazing Race scavenger hunt through Downtown Danville. Participants will receive clues at different locations around town that will prompt them to finish challenges in order to receive their next clue. Challenges include blindfold frosting, improv skits, pop quizzes and more.

The team with the most points will win the grand prize.
