Think the Amazing Race meets small-town America and you”ve got a pretty good idea of what Suwanee”s Super Incredible Race is all about. A fast-paced scavenger hunt that requires contestants to wear their thinking caps, Suwanee”s Super Incredible Race, to be held Saturday, April 21, is designed to encourage teamwork, test how well residents know Suwanee, and promote some good old-fashioned fun.

In teams of two or in family teams, participants race through a variety of high-energy mental and physical challenges. For example, teams might have to fly a paper airplane that they construct, find and eat a particular food, participate in relay-style games, and solve mind-benders. All activities will take place in downtown Suwanee, including Town Center, historic Main Street, and along the Suwanee Creek Greenway. No motorized vehicles will be permitted, but feet, bikes, strollers, and skates are OK.

Participants will need a camera, smartphone or other means of Internet access (which may include phoning a friend), and one canned good per team member. Creative team names and costumes are encouraged.

T-shirts will be guaranteed to all team members who sign up by March 30; applications are available at www.suwanee.com. Registration is $25 per two-member team; the fee for family teams is $25 for the first two team members plus $10 for each additional teammate.

The race will begin at noon April 21 at Town Center Park with distribution of clues. The race course will close at 5 p.m., with awards/prizes to be presented afterward at Town Center Park.
