Teams gather at the River City Brewing Company beginning at 11 a.m. to register for an Amazing Race–style scavenger hunt across Jacksonville. The race itself begins at noon and takes about two hours to complete.
The Great City Race
With a portion of the proceeds benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, The Great City Race challenges city dwellers' problem-solving skills and knowledge of their hometown in a race that's both mentally and physically challenging. Crowds of colorfully dressed teams gather on the date of the race armed with a digital camera or cell phone to document each task that they perform. Using nothing but their feet, public transportation, and knowledge of the city, teams must solve 11 out of 12 clues and return to the starting line. The teams with the best times are rewarded for their efforts with prizes, and all participants go home with a T-shirt and swag bag to stow excess confidence.
