Join Metro at the CMT Great Race, Metro Market on ThursdayReturn to Blog
Update: The 2017 Great Race and Metro Market has been postponed to Wednesday, June 14 due to weather.
It’s time to return to the starting line for another year of the CMT Great Race on Thursday, May 4.
Four teams representing four different modes of transportation will race to the finish line and claim coveted bragging rights. During the race, each team will complete various challenges, similar to the CBS television show “The Amazing Race.”
The finish line is located just steps away from the Delmar Loop MetroLink Station at the historic Wabash Station, where a pop-up Metro Market will be held featuring vendors, food and music. The Metro Market is free and open to the public – stop by anytime between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
And if you come by at 5 p.m., you can cheer on your favorite team as they cross the finish line, which includes Metro and Bi-State Development employees as well as several local media personalities:
- Kevin Steincross, Fox 2 News in the Morning
- Jill Devine, Y98 FM
