Ocean Park will once again host its Amazing Race event Feb. 9.

Amazing Race returns to Ocean Park’s Family Day

Amazing Race Canada contestent to MC at Ocean Park event

Fans of Amazing Race Canada won’t want to miss out on Ocean Park’s Family Day festivities this long weekend.

That’s because former contestant Ryan Steele will be taking on MC duties for the second annual Amazing Race in Ocean Park Village – Family Edition event.

Steele – who finished in third place on the second season of the show –  said in a news release that his time on the series memorable.

“(It) was the most enjoyable and stressful thing I’ve ever done,” the Vancouver-based sketch comedian said.

Organizers of the Feb. 9 event note that participants can expect just as much fun in the Ocean Park version of the Amazing Race, with challenge stations set up along their routes, hosted by local business owners, neighbours and volunteers.

Last year’s challenges included taking silly “selfies” at Ocean Park landmarks, singing songs in public, balance and endurance tests, tent pitching, puzzle making and riddles.

The first-place family will take home an annual pass to Science World, a trophy and will have their name engraved on the event trophy displayed at Ocean Park Pub.

New to this year’s event will be a community cheering squad made up of individuals and families who are encouraged to bring noisemakers to cheer on families and celebrate the completion of the event at Ocean Park Hall, 1577 128 St.

The wrap-up party will feature food and drinks sold by parents of Ocean Cliff Elementary School, with proceeds benefiting a playground.

Registration for the event is $25 per family, with a limit of 35 participating families.
