The fun doesn’t stop there! Fireball Run selected Dutchess County as a featured destination in the series’ 10th Anniversary Season. Fireball Run tells the story of 40 teams as they compete in a legendary 2,000-mile, life-sized trivia game. To win, contestants compete in an epic quest for America’s under-discovered places and historic artifacts, while aiding in a massive awareness campaign, The Race to Recover America’s Missing Children.

The live competition is from September 23 to October 1. Spectators are welcomed to meet the celebrity teams and take pictures with exotic vehicles when they stay overnight in Beacon on September 28th. Visit www.FireballRun.com to learn more.
