For Adults & Kids Grades K-12

Two Person Teams - Adult/Adult, Adult/Kid or Kid/Kid



   Sign up for this national family-friendy skills competition for adults & kids grades K-12.  This D.I.T. (Do-It-Together) adventure race is modeled after the TV show "THE AMAZING RACE."  Two-person teams in separate age divisions compete against their peers completing a one mile course speckled with fun outdoor challenges that require teamwork, coordination & smarts. Invite your friends, family members, neighbors or co-workers to join in the fun.  It's way more fun than a 5K!   Official Site:

     “Thank you for an amazing day!  My daughter and I haven't laughed so much or pushed ourselves in forever.  We will be back!" ... Racer Testimonial 

The Great Amazing Race series makes pit stop in NFL, NBA and MLB cities.  The top 25 teams from each local race qualify for Championship Race and $1,500 prize. 


We are partnering with the Max Cure Foundation's - Dunk Your Kicks program which fights against pediatric cancer.  You too can join the fight by donating 2 pairs of used sneakers or running shoes to the cause.  When you do, you will receive a free mulligan/2 minute time-eraaser token for the race.  We believe that one good deed deserves another.  


Teams consist of two participants: Adult/Adult, Adult/Kid or Kid/Kid.

   Kindergarten and Pre-K are allowed if paired with an adult. 

Race packets can be picked up 45 miniutes prior to start of the race. 



Large groups (10 or more teams), teachers, military, police, fire & EMS receive special pricing through the portal only.


1. Teams of two people race against other teams around a one-mile cross country course completing a string of up to 8 fun outdoor challenges. Clue cards provided at each station directs each team to complete obstacle or task together - before proceeding to the next challenge station. Contestants strive to arrive at the finish line with the fastest overall time.

2. How well you work and communicate with your teammate are the most essential skills to winning the race.
