  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 challenges. Teams that complete the challenges and arrive at finish line with fastest times are declared the winners. How well teammates work together (collaborate & communicate) is the most essential skill to winning the race.  1st place medals awarded to each division winner.

   The race is open to everyone ... runners, joggers & walkers - pee wees to grandparents.  Be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. This race is way more fun than a 5k race!
