I did The Amazing Race on December 12, 2009 in the rain the entire time. I was concerned that perhaps they were not going to put it on, but I drove up all the way from OC anyways.

Our leader (Larry) was very friendly and off-the-bat said that...continued

It was a good mix of physical and mental challenge and lots of fun. I got to see places and things in LA I have not seen in the last 10 years here. It was well organized.

Probably the best money ever spent!!!! What a great way to experience LA, I've been living here for 5 years and discovered new places! I must say, it is a bit strenuous, so even for young 'ems like us... we definitely needed some stretching pre...continued

The Amazing LA Race is one of the coolest things I've done since moving to Los Angeles 8 years ago! Whether you are new to the area or an old-timer, everyone would have fun doing this. It is pretty physical, especially if you're competitive like...continued

This race was sooo much fun. My team and I discovered a part of L.A we have never seen and we have lived her for over 10 years. There was a lot of running/walking but it was a lot of fun. The event was organized very well by Larry and Bob who...continued

This was great fun - lots of clues, and really learning and getting around parts of LA. I'd recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the amazing race.

What an awesome day! We had a group of 5 LA locals and saw things in town we've never had the opportunity to check out. Looking forward to the next race (they're planning to create a West LA race in the next few months).

We took two 13-yr-old boys and had a fun time running around.
It was harder than we expected, and we'd read the reviews here and the helpful hints.

1. It's hot. Bring water. (And remember to drink...continued

The race was a challenge and the clues were very difficult, but it was a unique and fun way to celebrate a Birthday. I am a native Southern California girl and I was amazed that I discovered new places in my own back yard!

I can't imagine anyone that wouldn't enjoy this event. A complete blast and the perfect way to spend a day in L.A. The way the race is set up, it is as challenging as you want to make it - from full out sprinting around town to taking your time...continued

Had a great time. It was a lot of fun. They had good clues that made you think. We had 6 in our group and everyone was able to help in trying to figure it out. In the end when talking about it, we did a lot and were quite proud of ourselves. I'm...continued

I surprised my boyfriend with this activity and we both LOVED it! It was a great way to spend the day, see places in LA I didn't know existed, and learn more about each other along the way! Absolutely awesome!

We had no idea what to expect. We were surprised at the cleverness of the organizers. Sometimes much TOO clever. We live in LA. The race took us to places we had never been. No time to look at the places during the race, so we will...continued

Based on the reviews here I was really expecting this to be better than it was. Basically, it involved solving a series of puzzles in Hollywood and Downtown LA using numbers and letters...it's nothing like "The Amazing Race" at all, although the...continued

Although we didn't come in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, our group had a fantastic time. I have lived in LA my whole life but had never...continued

I was extremely excited about running The Amazing L.A. Race, and it exceeded all my expectations. The competition was well-organized, adventurous and clever. The organizer, Bernie, was fantastic. Our group had 8, so we split our group into 2...continued
