    This is your chance to test your “AMAZING RACE” skills.  Modeled after the TV show, contestants pair up with a friend, family member or co-worker ~ and compete against other similar age teams.
    2 person teams race around a 1.5 mile cross country course with multiple physical & mental challenge stations.  Clue cards provided at stations along the course direct teams to complete a task, either together or by a single member, before continuing to race. How well you work together with your partner (aka TEAMWORK) is the #1 most important skill to winning the race.

   Teams strive to arrive at finish line with fastest overall times to be declared the winners. Be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. This race is way more fun than any 5K race!
