 Reserve your spots now, you can create your teams later on race day. (Each race caps at 100 teams)


   Grab a friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker ~ and get ready to enjoy the most exciting adventure race on the planet!  It’s a fun-filled outdoor skills competition modeled after the popular TV show "THE AMAZING RACE." Teams compete against similar age teams completing a 1.5 mile XC course speckled with up to 8 physical and mental challenges. Each obstacle, game or relay requires teammates to work together (aka TEAMWORK) to complete and advance forward. If you struggle doing so, then you can kiss winning goodbye!

  Be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. It’s a great bonding experience and way more fun than a 5k race!
