Every-once-in-awhile teams would race out of the building, with a camera man running behind. All heading towards a car. (Liam Harrap/Revelstoke Review)

Teams were spotted racing out of the museum with a camera man running behind. One team stopped and asked city workers where the Revelstoke Mountain Resort was and also information on how to get around a Canadian Pacific train. At the time, a train had stopped and was blocking the road crossing in front of the museum

The Amazing Race Canada is a reality television competition that features teams in a race across Canada and the world. It’s divided into a series of challenges. Teams receive destination clues and must complete the challenges to get to the next task. The first team to cross the finish line wins $500,000 in both cash and prizes. It’s the largest grand prize ever awarded for a Canadian competition series.

The show was in Revelstoke in January, scouting possible locations.

The contestants were in Kamloops earlier this week for filming. Season 7 is scheduled to air in July.
