THE GREAT AMAZING RACE SERIES – 1.5 miles with challenge stations

It’s the ultimate test of TEAMWORK and way more fun than any 5K race! Get ready to enjoy an exciting family-friendly adventure race and race against other similar age teams. You can walk, jog or run ~ yet be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. Open for ages 4 to 84, the race offers a competitive course for adult teams & recreation course for kids teams.

Modeled after the popular TV show “THE AMAZING RACE”, two person teams (adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid) complete a 1.5 mile cross country course speckled with a variety of fun physical & mental challenges. Each challenge requires teammates to work together in order to complete & advance forward. And If you struggle doing so, then you can kiss winning goodbye!
