It's off to the races Saturday to benefit charities


Teams of two will be scurrying through Walla Walla this weekend in an adventurous version of the community’s own “Amazing Race.”

Thirty teams will race for 22 charities Saturday in Walla Walla’s Awesome Race 2013.

More than a dozen businesses have teamed up in a daylong adventure coordinated by The Sweet Putt.

Teams will race through businesses, completing various tasks. The top six teams will take away money for their designated charities. The first-place team will earn $1,125 for its charity.

Spectators are encouraged to join in and will receive a map of the first leg of the race once competitors have started, according to an announcement. For more information or to follow the tweets, check in at or @sweetputt1 #awesomeraceww.
