MAHOPAC N.Y. — “The Fireball Run” will make a pit stop in Mahopac this fall.
“The Fireball Run” is a nationally streamed, internationally televised, adventure/travel series and Putnam County will welcome the teams of adventure seekers as they participate in an epic 2,000-mile, life-sized, trivia road race.
The show’s upcoming 10th anniversary season will feature teams as they travel through New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, and Massachusetts in pursuit of America’s most unique places and historic artifacts. Only one team will win this contest.
The program also has a charitable component that accompanies the contestants as they travel from destination to destination. The Race to Recover America’s Missing Children never ends, and the Fireball Run seeks to spread awareness on each leg of the show’s journey. Each team will be given flyers of missing children to hand out to locals and each team will have a missing child associated with their vehicle. Through their efforts, the Fireball Run has successfully returned over 40 children to their families in ten years of production.
On the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 30, Route 6N in Mahopac will transform into the ultimate stage for the Fireball Run finish line. Teams will utilize the day to traverse the county in pursuit of destinations that span from Brewster to the Hudson River. Residents are invited to come out cheer on each team as they cross the finish line.
On the morning of Saturday, Oct. 1, beginning at 7 a.m., the streets of Mahopac will be lined with the contestant’s hot rods before they take off for their final destination of Amesbury, Mass. Residents are encouraged to stick around as the day continues with the Italian American Club of Mahopac’s Columbus Day Parade at 10 a.m. Following the parade, local vendors at the Greater Mahopac-Carmel Chamber of Commerce’s annual Street Fair will be selling their wares.
Fireball Run in Putnam provides the County an opportunity to display some of its world class destinations, while also showing off community strength and pride. The show will be available to stream on Amazon Prime, and will be aired on network television internationally.
