ABOUT THE RACE
The Great Amazing Race is a national skills competition, in which teams of two people race through an obstacle course in competition with their peers. Modeled after the TV show, this exciting adventure race features teams (adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid) completing a one-mile course speckled with up to 8 fun-filled outdoor challenges. Clue cards provided at each station instructs teams to complete a task or obstacle, either together or by single member, before advancing to the next challenge station.
The top 25 teams from each local race qualify for Championship Race and $1,500 prize. This race is way more fun than a 5K! Official Site: www.GreatAmazingRace.com.
“Thank you for an amazing day! My daughter and I haven't laughed so much or pushed ourselves in forever. We will be back!" ... Testimonial
1. How well the teammates work together (communicate & collaborate) is the most essential skill to winning the race.
2. Racers should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet – it’s part of the fun!
3. Unsure of a teammate? No worries, reserve your spot now then bring a teammate on race day.
4. Unsure of which race to choose? No worries, teams have until race day to decide on the Recreation Race (for those who prefer to go at a leisure pace) or the Competitive Race (for those who are more physically active). Be aware ... the competitive course consumes energies equivalent to that of a 5K race.
5. Plan on 60 minutes to complete the race course.
6. Race is held rain or shine.
7. Spectators are FREE. The course layouts are spectator friendly to encourage family and friends to come cheer on the participants.
