July 23 is ready, set, and go for the CARSTAR Great Valley Rally.

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce started the Great Valley Rally in 2014 as a fun way to bring the three communities of the Comox Valley together in a positive way. Register your team by July 1 and get bonus points.

The CARSTAR Great Valley Rally is modeled after the Amazing Race, with teams completing challenges at checkstops throughout the communities.

There are two team options: Register as a bicycle team of four or five members or register as a car team with four or five members.

The theme for this year’s race is musical icons throughout the decades. Come dressed as your favourite rock ‘n roll band, or a folk singer/songwriter, or Madonna through the decades; the list is endless. Have fun with your team and come up with amazing outfits as there is a prize for best team costume.

The rally starts in Cumberland and ends in Comox with a fun afternoon of music and food for the racers at the Filberg Community Stage, in the Filberg Park. Each year the Great Valley Rally benefits a different organization in the Comox Valley. The 2016 recipient is the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association.

To register your team go to www.greatvalleyrally.com and follow the links. Teams who register before July 1 will receive extra bonus points to go toward their overall standings. Register today and get a fun, rocking team together for a great event: CARSTAR’s Great Valley Rally 2016!
