   Get ready to enjoy the most exciting race on the planet.  Modeled after the popular TV show "The Amazing Race", this event features two person teams racing in competition with other similar age teams. Teams complete a variety of fun physical & mental tasks at multiple stops along the course. "Teamwork" is key skill as each challenge requires the involvement/collaboration of both racers to complete, before advancing to next station.

   Walk, jog or run - and be prepared to get a little dirty & wet.  It's a great bonding experience and way more fun than a 5K race!

 Waves begin every 10 minutes - kids teams, then adult teams.

1. Ages: Open for ages 4 to 84 ... walk, jog or run.
2. Teams: 2 person teams ... adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid.
3. Length: 1.5 miles with up to 8 challenge stations.  
4.  Medal Divisions: Grades K-2 / 3-5 / 6-8 / 9-Adults ... based on grade of younger racer. 
5. Levels: Recreations (for leisure pace teams) & Competitive (for physically active teams) 
6. Plan on 60 minutes to complete course ... race happens rain or shine.

 PEDIATRIC CANCER CHARITY PARTNER: Help us fight pediatric cancer by donating 2 pairs of used sneakers or running shoes at the race ... and receive a 2 minute time eraser token.

 SHARE THIS EVENT: Share with 8+ people on social media or email ... and receive a free GAR Backpack ($15 value). ... (Example:  "We are doing The Great Amazing Race. Join us and we both get free GAR backpacks.")
