Team 'DahlHouse' Wins 2012 Agrifair Amazing Race

Once again the Agrifair Amazing Race has been a great success. With five teams of two people competing, the hot weather was no deterrent for the enthusiastic contestants. With temperatures soaring into the 30's today, the winning team managed to complete the race in a very respectable one hour and thirty-five minutes. Team 'DahlHouse', comprising of Wayne and Mary Jane Dahl, scooped the first prize of $1,000 in cash.

Second place was team 'CrossFingers', comprising of Vanessa Berglund and Tristan Lennard. The final race time for 'CrossFingers'  was one hour and forty-two minutes. They received a $700 cash prize. Third place was awarded to team 'AbbyFab Duo', comprising of  Kelly Ledbrook and Mike Diotte. Only three minutes behind the team placed second the 'AbbyFab Duo' received $300 cash.

Runners-up; team 'WonderWomen' (Cindi Fairbrother and Caitlyn Knight) and team 'BubbleTrumps' (Danica Moe and Crystal McBean) ran a very good race with times very close to the top three winners.

The Agrifair Amazing Race was sponsored by Agrifair and presented by The Abbotsford News. For photographs of the contestants click here.
