ABOUT THE RACE
Sign up for this fun and memory-making family activity? It's way more fun than a 5K!
Kids in grades 1-12 can pair up or race against parents, grandparents, family members, friends and neighbor while completing a one mile course filled with fun challenges patterned after the show THE AMAZING RACE. Whether you run, jog or walk, it'll be an experience you will never forget! Two adults can also pair up and participate.
“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 all NFL cities. The top 25 teams from each city qualify for the Championship Race and $2,000 prize. (August Championship in Cincinnati / December Championship 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.
Time Saver Tokens can be purchased at any time prior to the 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 and are physically active).
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 1-4 Division and Grades 5 & Older Division.
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.
