The Funnest Adventure Race on the Planet!
The Great Amazing Race is a national skills competition that features two-person teams racing through an obstacle course in competition with their peers. Since 2012 - this exciting adventure race series, modeled after the TV show, has invited contestants to complete a one-mile course sprinkled with up to eight fun-filled outdoor challenges. Clue cards provided at each station instructs teams to complete a task (obstacle, game, relay, etc) before advancing to the next challenge station. How well teammates work together (communicate & collaborate) is the most essential ingredient to winning the race.
1. The race is open to everyone - runners, joggers, walkers - pee wees to grandparents.
2. A team consists of two people - adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid.
