Worth noting: 'Bakersfield Amazing Race' coming up

By The Bakersfield Californian

Stewards Inc., a faith-based nonprofit serving the mentally disabled and elderly in Bakersfield , will hold its first Bakersfield Amazing Race on April 13.

From noon to 5 p.m., teams of two and four will compete for a $1,000 first prize by scouring the downtown area in a race to solve 12 clues and challenges at 12 different businesses. Second and third prizes will also be awarded -- $500 and $250 -- according to a Stewards Inc. news release.

The event opens at 11 a.m. at Stewards Inc., 2211 H St., at which time contestants can pick up their registrations packets. The race wraps up at On the Rocks, 1517 18th St., where a finish line awaits them. After the last group comes in, a ceremony will be held to announce the winners. Free hors d'oeuvres, beverages and music will be provided.

Pre-registration is available for $35 per person at www.BakersfieldAmazingRace.org.
