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 the clock and their peers. Modeled after the popular TV show, teammates must work together to complete a string of challenges prior to crossing finish line. 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!  Open to everyone – runners, joggers, walkers – pee wees to grandparents. Waves begin every 10 minutes – kids teams, then adult teams.
