  It's more about TEAMWORK than running your personal best.  Modeled after the TV show, THE GREAT AMAZING RACE is a fun adventure race in which teams of two people race around a cross country course speckled with a variety of challenges. Each challenge requires the cooperation/coordination of both teammates in order to complete before advancing. Medals are awarded to each division winner. Be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. It's way more fun than a 5K!  
   Waves begin every 10 minutes - kids teams, then adult teams. Open to everyone - walkers, joggers & runners - pee wees to grandparents.
