The idea is “The Amazing Race” or “Urban Challenge” meets the Mandell JCC!
Participants will complete obstacles and challenges at different locations around the JCC and will need to solve riddles/rhymes in order to make their way to the respective locations.
There will be other photo challenges along the way, as well as ‘Best Team Costume’ and ‘Best Team Name’ winners. Dave & Buster’s, Fleet Feet, and The Hartford Yard Goats are co-sponsoring and will be giving away prizes.
The Family/Friends Dash will be Saturday, March 19th from 5:30-7:30PM.
