About This Activity

SIGN UP NOW ... A Fun & Exciting Adventure/Obstacle Race for Adult & Kids ~ Donate Sneakers for Cancer!
Official website: www.GreatAmazingRace.com

  Modeled after the TV show, THE GREAT AMAZiNG RACE (GAR) features teams of two racing against other teams around a cross country course speckled with fun-filled challenge stations. How well you work together (communicate & collaborate) with your teammate is the most essential skill to completing the course. Be prepared to get a little dirty & wet, this race is way more fun than a 5K race!

   Open to everyone - walkers, joggers & runners - pee wees to grandparents.  Waves begin every 10 minutes - kids teams, then adult teams.
