Race of Vermilion is a great way to explore Vermilion!
Hosted by the Good Life Institute of Vermilion, Alberta, the Race of Vermilion is always a fun and challenging day of team-based competition through the town of Vermilion. Teams of four enter for the day-long event that tests teams' abilities to solve clues, complete detours, and engage in mental & physical challenges throughout the Town of Vermilion.
The race uses roughly 20 stations around the town where unique or hidden talents as well as mental and physical abilities can push your team to the top. Previous challenges have included axe throwing, pottery creations, yoga, dance routines and even dragging a dummy while competitors are dressed as a fireman. Clues are left for the teams to find the next challenge.
The challenges are kept under wraps so there is no home team advantage. Teams from out of town are invited to participate and see just what Vermilion has to offer.
After the race is completed, teams are provided with dinner to announce the winning teams following the race.
