Participants from The Amazing Race Canada, a reality series on the CTV network, were spotted in Yellowknife earlier today.

Seven two-person teams and a bevy of camera operators were seen running up and down Pilot's Monument at around 10 a.m.

Contestants were clutching the signature black and yellow Amazing Race envelopes as they jumped into their sport utility vehicles and sped off to their next destination.

One of the show's producers said the Yellowknife episode would air as part of the inaugural season, which premieres on July 15.
