He's an actual rabbit.
Man-Rabbit, if you will.
Ok, actually he's just a miserable old man that we force to dress in a bunny suit.
He takes off ahead of the field and hides on the course. Come up with your strategy for catching him, because he can be awfully mischievous.
Catch yourself a carrot from the Hare, and you gain yourself a position point in the standings for your team.
If you find one of the stuffed bunnies on the course, you get yourself a pie (yes, literally) and a point.
