ABOUT THE RACE:Are you looking for a fun and memory-making activity to do with your family? Then this race is for you! Kids team up with a parent, grandparent, sibling or mentor and compete in a series of 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. It's way more fun than a 5K!
“Thank you for your time and what an awesome day my son and I had. My son could not stop talking about it and thanking me for taking him! I truly appreciate the work you and your team our doing, it has made memories that will last a life time.”
REGISTRATION INFO: For teams of two (adult/kid or kid/kid), one or both participants must be a kid in grade 1-12. Kindergarten & Pre-K is allowed if paired with an adult.

Spectators are welcome to tag along for free and take photos for the scrapbook.
RACE DESCRIPTION:Modeled after the popular television show "THE AMAZING RACE", this rain or shine event pits teams of two against other teams in a series of up to 8 (eight) fun-filled challenges across a one-mile cross-country course. The clue cards instruct the teams to complete a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next challenge station. How well you work as a team is the most essential ingredient to winning the race. The team that reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time wins. Contestants should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet - it's part of the fun!
Teams can choose a recreation level (those who prefer to walk or jog at a leisure pace) or a competitive level (those who prefer to run and complete more challenging tasks). The top 25 teams, from each city, qualify for the National Championship Race and a chance to win $2,000!
SUPPORTING:The race series supports the 30-MINUTES-A-DAY academic initiative, a national program that promotes daily family engagement in three home activities (physical exercise, reading a book and healthy eating) that have the power to improve student's academic performance and family quality of life. We recognize that it is hard to have success at school without a solid foundation at home.
