Toronto Trek for Teens Race

An ''Amazing Race''-styled contest around Toronto, high school students raise funds to aid the city's homeless and to raise awareness for this cause. Checkpoint Challenges, requiring athleticism, knowledge, creativity, or a blend of all three, reward the teams quickest to complete the goals.

What is it?

Trek for Teens Day  is the organization’s annual event. It consists of several attractions, including the Trek for Teens Day Race, the Fair, and a free concert in the evening. The Race challenges teams aged 13-18 in the High School Category and teams aged 19-24 in the University Category to solve problems and find hidden clues, working together in order to successfully complete the course (much like the “Amazing Race”).

To participate in the race, one must:

  • be 13-18 years old for the High School Category
  • be 19-24 years old for University Category
  • have a team of three to five members
  • pledge a minimum amount of $30 per participant

Specifics: The Race

The race event is a team-oriented race which takes place in downtown Toronto. Teams aged 13-18 in the Junior Category and teams aged 19-24 in the Senior Category are required to solve problems and find hidden clues, working together in order to successfully complete the course (much like the “Amazing Race”). There will be a first place prize for the top team in the High School Category and the top team in the University Category.

Specifics: The Fair

The Fair will consist of game-based activities for all ages; each game will be pay-what-you-can. Non-Race participants are also welcome to play. Food and beverages will be available for all.
