FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 3/17/2006
PENDLETON --- Tri-County Technical College will start its own tradition of the Amazing Survivor Race April 1 with an all-day community event.
Participants in this race will spend a day traveling throughout Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties to face amazing challenges and perform stunning feats. Ten teams, each consisting of five participants (male and female), will participate in 10 events that will take place across the three counties.
Team members must be 18 years of age and older and be of average athletic ability. The event begins at 8 a.m. and will run until the first team arrives back at the College. Kelly McCorkle, of the Amazing Race 7 and Miss South Carolina 2002, will present the trophy to the winning team just before the College’s First Annual Bluegrass Concert kicks off at 6 p.m. The race is open to the public, and the cost is $500 per team.
Proceeds from the race will help to fund “Bluegrass under the Stars,” a free concert and fireworks event for the family set for Saturday, April 1, from 6 - 10 p.m. in the College's Amphitheatre. Asheville-based Steel String Theory will headline a trio of bluegrass artists, including perennial fan favorites Curtis Blackwell and the Dixie Bluegrass Boys and Al Osteen and Friends,
“We plan to have a great time with this race, and in the process, create a greater awareness of how our College works to support the community,” said Tom Baxter, program coordinator for Respiratory Care and the creator of this event.
