ABOUT THE RACE: Kids in grades 1-12 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 an 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: Modeled after the popular television show "THE AMAZING RACE", this rain or shine event pits teams of two participants against other teams completing 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! 3. REGISTRATION INFO: Teams consist of two participants (adult/kid, kid/kid or adult/adult).
