The Urban Stampede descended on downtown Louisville on Saturday and brought with it reality show stars like Ralph Kelly from The Amazing Race season 20 and Jodi Wincheski from that shows season 14. They hit the street along with Louisville residents, following clues and performing challenges along the way. Organizers likened it to The Amazing Race with elements of Survivor thrown in and I got the assignment to cover the event for Metromix.
The tire challenge, pictured above, proved difficult as the second to the last one. Perhaps because you knew you neared the end. The brother and sister team shown here finished first in their heat and commented to the news media that they look for things like this to compete in all the time.
After all the running, Haley Scarnato and Michael Sarver, both from American Idol, performed along with local stars Thumper and the Plaid Rabbits and more. See the preview below and the full take on-line now at Metromix.
