Red Bull Chariot Race is not your typical toga party. The inaugural event debuted in Athens, GA but will make its way to Knoxville, TN on October 18 at Fiji Island (Fraternity Park Lawn). This event celebrates school spirit while mixing in a healthy serving of school rivalry. Teams from the University of Tennessee will fight to finish for ultimate bragging rights.
Those brave enough to take on this courageous voyage will have to play by some rules. Each team is limited to three members and they must maneuver their human-powered chariot (no horses here) through the designated course at Fiji Island. Teams will race head-to-head in a bracket format competition with the top teams advancing to the finals. Speed is important, but style counts! Each team will perform a short skit to woo the crowd prior to the start. Sound familiar? The event concept is closely alighted with one of the wackiest events around, Red Bull Flugtag; however with Red Bull Chariot Race everyone stays dry.
The team crossing the finish line first will be awarded the coveted Hermes Prize. Teams that are not blessed by the gods with speed shouldn’t fret. Two additional prizes are bestowed on those with other talents: the Archimedes Award will go to the team that displays the most inventiveness and design, the Greek Spirit Award is handed out to the team with the most creativity, enthusiasm and performance, and finally the people will cast their votes and decide which team is their favorite in the People’s Choice Award.
