Casting for Season 8 of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA closes on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 11:59 p.m. ET, so aspiring competitors have less than a month left to apply for their chance to run the race of a lifetime. Sharing some of the top reasons why they wanted to be part of this incredible journey, Season 7 competitors Meaghan and Marie, from Halifax, and Lauren and Joanne, from Saskatchewan, encourage Canadians to apply for Season 8 of Canada’s most-watched summer series.
For the Travel Opportunities
Marie: “THE AMAZING RACE CANADA allowed us to explore parts of our country that we would’ve otherwise not seen. I mean, who can say they have swam under ice in Yellowknife?”
To Become the Best Version of Yourself
Meaghan: “As humans, we constantly underestimate ourselves and what we’re capable of. We learned this quickly. THE AMAZING RACE CANADA allowed us to truly be our best selves.
For a Bonding Experience Like No Other
Marie: “The race brought us together in ways that we couldn't have imagined. We ran the race in honour of our mom, Jonesy, who passed from cancer when we were 14, and it was an incredible time to reflect on her legacy.”
For the Surprises and Thrills
Lauren: “Every day you start off and have no idea where you will be at the end of it. It’s so rare to let go of control in that way.”
Joanne: “One minute you’re bungee jumping in Nanaimo, B.C. and the next you’re tasting jams in Wolfville, N.S.”
To Discover your Inner Strength
Lauren: “THE AMAZING RACE CANADA really is a chance to test yourself in a completely once-in-a lifetime, incredible way. Every time I thought I had nothing left, I always managed to dig a bit deeper.”
