The 2016 Pot Of Gold Relay Race was a huge success,

join us next year for the 2018race

The Pot of Gold Relay Race is a fund raiser for Investigation Station's splash pad at the Veterans Memorial Park in Hudson. The project has a $250,000 budget to allow for the safest and best equipment for our local children and visitors. The Pot of Gold Relay Race will take place at Orange Lake, across from Sims Park in downtown New Port Richey. The relay race will consist of a number of activities for each team to complete, like puzzle assembly, cup stacking, bottle flipping and surgery gear dress up.  Each time an activity is completed, the judge will award a gold coin. Teams must run each coin down to the other side of the field and drop the them into their pots. The first team to return their full pot back to the judge will be the winner. Winning teams will receive medals.

Heats are available for all types of teams: adults,  high school students (age requirements), families (age requirements), families with young children (age requirements), local heroes (such as fire fighters, law enforcement officers and EMTs) and people with special needs.
