Official Site: www.GreatAmazingRace.com. A family fun adventure race with challenges modeled after the show THE AMAZING RACE. It's way more fun than a 5K! On-line registration will close once 100 team limit is reached. Sign up now, team members can be added later on race day!
1. ABOUT THE RACE: Kids in grades K-12 can pair up with or race against parents, grandparents, family members, friends or neighbors while completing a one mile cross country course filled with fun challenges patterned after the show THE AMAZING RACE. Whether you run, jog, walk or watch, it'll be a BONDING EXPERIENCE you will never forget. Adults can pair up and participate too! Testimonial: "What an awesome day my son and I had. My son could not stop talking about it and thanking me for taking him! It has made memories that will last a life time."
2. RACE DESCRIPTION: This rain or shine event pits teams of two people against each others who must complete a string of up to eight fun-filled challenges spread across a one-mile cross-country course. Each station will contain a SECRET CLUE CARD that instructs each team to complete a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next challenge station. Challenge stations include varying levels of difficulty, based on age of participant. The team that reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time wins. How well you work as a team is the most essential ingredient to winning the race! Waves begin every 10 minutes ... kids teams, then adult teams.
3. REGISTRATION INFO: Teams consist of two participants (any combo of adults & kids ). Kindergarten & Pre-K is allowed only if paired with an adult. Active duty, reserves, retired - military, law enforcement and fire department - including spouses - receive a 50% discount off team entry fee.
