Putnam Looking for “Fireball Run” Team

Need two contestants for eight-day trek

The Putnam County tourism office is looking for two people to take part in a 2,000-mile journey as part of the tenth anniversary of the show Fireball Run, which will film 26 episodes over eight days beginning in Western New York, then winding through Pennsylvania and Maryland and returning to New York before concluding in Amesbury, Mass. Putnam County will be featured near the end of the trek, on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

The total cost for the event is $8,500, although the tourism bureau hopes to pay some or all of that cost through sponsorships. Contestants will need to be able to drive for long periods of time. If interested, call Frank Smith, Acting Director of Tourism, at 845-808-1015.
