Racers take off at the start of the Revelstoke Amazing Race Monday morning.

Rich Eden and Harald Ulriksen win Revelstoke Amazing Race



From delivering a lunch order to digging for golf balls, eight teams competed in a fast and furious race around Revelstoke Saturday, with team CBass, consisting of Richard Eden and Harald Ulriksen emerging victorious.

The race started at 9 a.m. in Grizzly Plaza. The first clue was hidden in the pages of the Times Review and sent the racers to the aquatic centre, where they had to search through 50 hockey pucks laid out on the pool bottom and spell out the word SPIRIT to get the next clue.

From there, they went to the the arena where they either had to shoot four curling rocks into the house or find four pictures of “Mr. Hockey” Gordie Howe in the History of Hockey display at the arena.

The next stop was Bad Paul’s and Escape Within, where teams had to deliver the lunch order from the latter to the former in a waiter race. They then rushed off to Ambience gallery to count how many paintings had pictures of a train in them.

At the golf course, teams had a choice of finding coloured golf balls in the snow or running a relay race with snowshoes on. Then they were off to the Big Eddy Pub, where one teammate had to eat a plate of their spiciest wings.

The next stop was a detour – either complete a fitness challenge at Trans Canada Fitness or answer heritage trivia questions at the Revelstoke Museum & Archives.

Finally, the teams went to Cooper’s Food, where they had to find the correct prices to some obscure food items.

After all that, it was Eden and Ulriksen who crossed the finish line at Grizzly Plaza first, completing the course in 3 hours and 58 minutes, four minutes ahead of runner-ups Joel Leblanc and Kritsti Mortel Leblanc.

Complete results are as follows, courtesy organizer John Devitt of the Chamber of Commerce:

7th place – “Team Robot”: Louise Gordon and Brandon Arrowsmith. Time: 4 hours, 24 minutes (Unfortunately, the team was disqualified because Brandon had to resign due to an injury. However, Louise chose to complete the race on her own!)

6th place – “Jenn-Lee”: Jennifer Perreault and Lee-Ann McLaughlin. Time: 4hr, 34min

5th place – “Two Spoons and a Fork”: Joannie Huberleau and Adam Angevaare. Time: 4hr, 33min

4th place – “The First Last Droppers”: Emma Kirkland and Lynsay Roe. Time: 4hr, 12min

3rd place – “The A-Team”: Heather Cretelli and Ben Parkin. Time: 4hr, 8min

2nd place – “Just for Laughs”: Joel Leblanc and Kristi Mortel-LeBlanc. Time: 4hr, 2min

1st place – “CBass”: Richard Eden and Harald Ulriksen. Time: 3hr, 58min

The winners received a $100 prize and all participants got a gift certificate to the Last Drop. The organizers thanked all the businesses that took part in the challenges and the volunteers that helped out.
