Touring all NFL cities. The GREAT AMAZING RACE provides kids with an opportunity to pair up with a parent, grandparent, sibling or mentor and experience the thrill of running in a fun and exciting environment! 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 are doing, it has made memories that will last a lifetime.” Race parent.
COURSE INFO: Patterned after the popular television show “THE AMAZING RACE”, teams of two race against other teams around a one (1) mile cross country course that includes up to eight (8) fun-filled challenges. The clue cards instruct the contestants to complete a task (game, relay obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next challenge. The team that completes the challenges and reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time is declared the winner. Contestants should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet – it’s part of the fun! This is a rain or shine event.
> Teams can choose a recreation level (those who prefer to walk or jog at a leisure pace) or or a competitive level (those who prefer to run and complete more challenging tasks).
> Fast Forward tokens (aka. Time Savers) can be purchased at any time prior to start of the race. Teams will receive a 1 minute deduction for every additional $5.00 submitted (up to 4 minutes).

The GREAT AMAZING 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!
