ABOUT THE RACE
Sign up for this fun and family-friendly activity! It's way more fun than a 5K!
The race is patterned after the show THE AMAZING RACE. Teams of two people (kids in grades K-12 & adults) race against other teams completing a one mile course filled with fun challenges requiring teammates to work together to complete. Whether you run, jog or walk, it'll be an experience you will never forget!
“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 lifetime.”
The GREAT AMAZING RACE SERIES makes pit stop in NFL, NBA and MLB cities. The top 25 teams, from each city race, qualify for the National Championship Race and $2,000 prize. (August in Cincinnati / December in New Orleans)
Teams consist of two participants: adult/kid, kid/kid, or adult/adult. Kindergarten and Pre-K are allowed if paired with an adult. Challenge stations include varying degrees of difficulty, based on age of participant.
Race packets can be picked up at 45 miniutes prior to start of the race.
Modeled after the television show THE AMAZING RACE, this rain or shine event pits teams of two against other teams in a series of up to eight fun-filled challenges spread across a one mile cross country course. Clue cards instruct the teams to complete a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next challenge station. The team that finishes with the fastest overall time is the winner. How well you work as a team is the most essential ingredient to winning the race!
Contestants should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet – it’s part of the fun!
Recreation pace (those who prefer to walk or jog at a leisure pace) or Competitive pace (those who prefer to run).
Spectators are allowed to tag along for free and take photos for the scrapbook.
Special awards are given to the winners of each division (determined by grade of youngest team member): Grades K-4, Grades 5-8, Grades 9-12 and Adult teams.
The Great Amazing Race series supports the 30-MINUTES-A-DAY family initiative, a
national program that encourages parents to be a good ROLE MODEL by participating in three daily home activities that have the power to improve their students's academic performance and family quality of life: physical exercise, reading books and eating healthy. We recognize that it is hard to have success at school without a solid foundation at home.
