Inspired by The Amazing Race, Joe Reynolds ’03 decided in 2007 to energize communities across the country with an event called The Great Urban Race.

Teams of two loved completing clues and racing to the finish line. Success was so immediate that Reynolds created a company in Chicago called Red Frog Events. Soon there was a muddy obstacle course called Warrior Dash and a sand adventure known as Beach Palooza for fun-seekers.

Expect even more from Reynolds and Red Frog Events, as the company recently won the 2011 U.S. Chamber of Commerce DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award.
