Atlanta locals and visitors, get ready to lace up your tennis shoes and take your marks. On May 19, Loews Atlanta Hotel will host its first-ever Photo Finish Race, an Amazing Race-inspired relay and citywide scavenger hunt giving competitors a glimpse at some of the Georgia capital’s most well-recognized landmarks, such as Centennial Olympic Park and Turner Field.
Teams of two are invited to sign up for the race (by uploading a photo and creating a crafty team name) until 5 p.m. Friday on the Loews Atlanta Hotel Facebook page. There’s no cost to participate, and contestants (who must be 21 or older) meet at 9:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Loews to receive the first of 11 clues to the city. (Heads-up: If you share Loews Atlanta Hotel’s Photo Finish Race image on your Facebook page, your team will receive a clue before Sunday’s race.) From there, teams will embark on a mad dash to complete as many clues as possible, photo-documenting each destination along the way. Grand prizes include everything from two 60-minute full body massages at the downtown hotel’s Exhale spa to complimentary two-night weekend stays (with dinner) at Loews’s Atlanta, Miami Beach and New Orleans locations.
Regardless of what place you cross the finish line, plan to make a pit stop at the courtesy Bloody Mary prize reception in the hotel lobby at 2 p.m., compliments of the hotel’s Bar Eleven.
