[[FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCER'S EMAIL TO INQUIRY]]
Victor & Pamela,
We are excited you are interested in the adventure. I understand you discovered the FIREBALL RUN Adventurally from one of our most passionate teams. The production is powerful and has changed the lives of many participants- I hope it has a similar effect on you both.
It has been some time since I was asked what is FIREBALL RUN and what should I expect? As I write this I found myself reflecting on FIREBALL RUN as a whole... and kept going. So please excuse this long answer but feel it is fair to be accurate about what you are signing up for.
Here are a few things to keep in mind;
The discounted membership rate is $7,500 if at least one member of the team is; a business owner (home biz or small biz to large biz), C-level executive, celebrity of industry as defined by the production, or elected leader.
Exceptions ($7500) are; retirees of any category, active or retired members of the US Armed Forces, active or retired police, fire, or EMT. For those placing their lives in harms way for the sake of America's freedom and safety, FIREBALL RUN is always open.
$7500 membership covers; team of (2) persons, your (1) personal vehicle entry, all hotels (Friday Sept 21st-Sat Sept 29th) as single room/ double occupancy, all scheduled meals (bkfst, lunch, dinner, alcohol and non-alcohol drinks), all game/event fees, welcome gift pack, drivers gift pack, official decals, etc (a whole bunch of other stuff... you get the gist).
Expenses to consider; fuel, expense related in getting to the starting line, related expenses for the return home from the finish line, misc souvenirs (although you will be lauded with a bazillion free souvenirs), and of course personal necessities in route.
Standard rate is $27,500 (for non-qualifying); In essence to be in the FIREBALL RUN one must be a business owner of some type for the official host destinations to absorb $20,000 per entry.
FIREBALL RUN is "intense" and it can be an emotionally overwhelming experience. For new teams it typically takes a few days to realize the magnitude of the production and how you as an individual have changed so many lives as a result of mere participation.
FIREBALL RUN is an epic and surreal for those who embrace adventure, challenge, and have an open mind- it is not however a calm cruise through the countryside. If you are seeking a relaxing cruise we suggest Royal Princess Cruise Lines.
The game and adventure is only as stressful as you make it. If you can't figure out the clue just call the hotline, they will provide an additional hint or the answer. Play the game but don't let the game play you... the only thing at stake is ego and a plastic road sign trophy. There are no "prizes" in FIREBALL RUN, our teams are not motivated by "money, cars, or prizes" they are motivated by life-changing experiences.
Mission activities are fun, epic, once-in-a-lifetime, and/or historic... FIREBALL RUN participants are afforded access that money cannot buy, it comes from the hospitality of our unique destination hosts.
• FIREBALL RUN is also not an "event", it is a multimillion dollar rolling motion picture production with event-like moments. It's also "not a road race", speeds are monitored by GPS tracking. The unique interactive FIREBALL RUN is a strategy and thinking game combined; think "life-sized" trivia pursuit.
Its the journey, not the destination; our adventures drive to "under-discovered" destinations and the road less traveled. FIREBALL RUN is less about FIREBALL RUN than it is the story of 40 special teams as they embark upon an epic and emotional journey through the "Real" America and the lives of the people they inspire and are inspired by along the way.
Every destination's leadership is hosting you. We are guests of the Mayor, State, or Congressional leaders while in their hometown and are grateful for hospitality and warmth they share with us.
Our teams represent a robust, eclectic, and often "eccentric" socioeconomic mix of business people... its really awesome to see such diverse and successful people bonding as friends. Millions in deals go down in FIREBALL RUN, at the hotel bar, when the teams are surrounded by friends- that is where business is done. We build friendships that in 8 days organically mature into relationships.
• FIREBALL RUN is only catalyst; it is not a business "event", although we foster an atmosphere bringing like-minded people together for fun, adventure, and a passion for motoring. We are an excuse for destinations to take pride in themselves and show off to our world audience.
The private evening VIP receptions are adults only (due to spirited beverages). While in view of the public, media, and fans FIREBALL RUN is a "family friendly" production as we represent hope for America's Missing Children. Drinking and driving is impossible; the evening receptions take place at or very near our official hotel properties.
We have a strict no arrogance policy; while you have to be someone to get in, once in, you are like everybody else. Celebrities, while notable, are not given special treatment. We don't care who you are, what you drive, or what you own... everyone is equal in the FIREBALL RUN.
FIREBALL RUN is well known for philanthropy; in each of the 8 host destinations we also incorporate a "charity mission"; members may be asked to make a symbolic donation to a local charity indeed in the form of; toys, food, books, art supplies, games, or sporting equipment. Teams privately and independently donate an item or two. We never donate "cash". We do not know where cash goes. We do know toys will be used by children.
• Our Race to Recover America's Missing Children® is not a charity nor is FIREBALL RUN; our cause for missing children is not for a write-off, it is for the right reason. We do not do it for praise or to mask our production under the veil of charity. We do what we do because it is the corporately responsible thing to do. We believe America would be a better place if everyone did just a little more for someone else without the expectation of something in return.
If your personal and commercial views are in alignment with ours then FIREBALL RUN will be an epic, emotional, and life-changing adventure; if not, there are thousands of "event" alternatives, but there is only one Adventurally.
