About This Activity

Official website: www.GreatAmazingRace.com

Since 2012, THE GREAT AMAZING RACE (GAR) continues to offer one of the most exciting adventure races featuring two-person teams (adults & kids grades K-12) racing through an outdoor obstacle course in competition against their peers. Modeled after the popular TV show, teams complete a 1.5 mile cross country course sprinkled with a string of up to 8 fun-filled challenges. Teammates must work together to complete a challenge (task, obstacle, relay, etc.) before advancing to next challenge station. How well teammates work together (collaborate & communicate) is the most important skill to winning the race. Racers should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet - it's part of the fun!  Waves begin every 10 minutes - kids teams, then adult teams.
