Amazing Race To Serve is the North Coast Church version of the popular television series, The Amazing Race. Our short adventure race is like a scavenger hunt on steroids, taking teams from the Oceanside Pier to North Coast Church Vista Campus. Part adventure race, part party and all FUN for everyone – from the adrenaline junkie to the techie type and everything in between.
A FUNDRAISER FOR WEEKEND OF SERVICE
Two registration options:
Not entering the race? You can still participate by helping your favorite team or team member raise funds for the Weekend of Service. Support a team or team member!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Teams of two will race by foot and public transportation in a four to six hour time span, solving clues along the way! Check out our new Family-Friendly course option.
At the start of the race, each team will be given an envelope filled with 30 different challenges ranging in difficulty — some will be mental, others physical and some will require interaction with the public. The goal is to race to the finish line as fast as you can while solving at least 10 challenges. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers, best costume and for other surprise challenges along the way.
Teams can be couples, friends, family members – anyone can play! Having additional people at “home-base” will help you when you need to check clues, brainstorm answers or search the Internet.
The 2015 Amazing Race to Serve took place on Saturday, February 7, 2015. The entry fees helped North Coast Church reach their goal of raising $200,000 to cover materials for the 2015 Weekend of Service projects.
The event, inspired by “The Amazing Race” reality television show, features wacky costumes, zany physical challenges, jaunts on public transit and a mad dash for the finish line. This is the third time North Coast Church has held this “scavenger hunt on steroids,” which dares teams of two to follow clues leading them from Oceanside Pier to Vista without using personal vehicles.
The high-energy event started at 8:00am (check-in runs from 7-7:40am) at the Oceanside Pier Amphitheater, where each team received an envelope filled with 30 different top-secret tasks. Challenges include interaction with the public and mind-bending trivia leading to key area landmarks. Prizes are awarded for top finishers and best costumes.
The 2017 Weekend of Service will be April 29-30 and is expected to be bigger than ever. North Coast Church will cancel all church services and send their entire congregation into the community to complete over 400 high-impact projects at more than 100 sites across San Diego North County.
