- Great Amazing Race
SIGN UP NOW ... A Fun & Exciting 1.5M Adventure Run/Walk for Adult & Kids ~ Donate Sneakers for Cancer!
Official website: www.GreatAmazingRace.com
It's all about TEAMWORK! Modeled after the TV show, this family friendly race features teams of two people (adults & kids grades k-12) racing around a 1.5 mile cross country course in competition with other teams. Contestants are directed to perform a task (together) at multiple stops along the course. How well you work together is the most important skill to winning the race.
Walk, jog or run - yet be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. It's a great bonding experience and way more fun than a 5K race! Waves begin every 10 minutes - kids teams, then adult teams.
