Team Metrolink, Team MetroBus, Team CarShare and Team Bike will race, using their respective modes of transportation, to see who gets from their specified starting points to the finish line the fastest during the evening rush. Similar to the CBS television hit “The Amazing Race,” teams will be asked to complete a series of challenges along the way.
The finish line will be part of a pop-up Metro Market at the Historic Wabash Station, located at 6005 Delmar Blvd., just steps away from the Delmar MetroLink station. This event is designed to temporarily transform the vacant site into an active space that connects people to products, services and green spaces, showcasing how areas around transit stations can become focal points for activity. It is free and open to the public. Area residents are encouraged to stop by anytime between 4 and 6:30 p.m. Race participants are expected to cross the finish line around 5 p.m. An awards ceremony will follow shortly thereafter.
