Some Winnipeggers were out in the Wolseley area, trying to solve clues for Habitat for Humanity’s ‘Amazing Race’.

The ‘Amazing Race’ saw groups of two to four competitors run around Wolseley, solving riddles and racing against the clock to be the first team to solve all the clues.

The race supports buying tools, supplies and any other materials needed for building homes in Winnipeg, and some familiar Global News faces took part in the challenge.
