Modeled after the popular television show "THE AMAZING RACE", teams of two people (adults & kids grades K-12) race around a one-mile cross course in competition with other teams, completing a string of up to eight fun-filled challenges. Clue Cards provided at each station directs teams to perform a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) that requires teamwork, before proceeding to the next challenge station. Contestants strive to arrive at the finish line with the fastest overall time to be declared winners.   

  1. How well you work and communicate with your partner most essential skills to winning the race. 

  2. Racers should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet - it's part of the fun!   

  3. Challenge stations include varying levels of difficulty, based on age and level of the participants. Racers can choose a Recreation Pace (for those who prefer the easier course) or Competitive Pace (for those who prefer the more difficult course).   

  4. Mulligan/Time-Saver passes are offered. Teams will be given a second chance to complete a task and not be penalized. It's great for any race miscues. (Limit of 1 per team)

  5. Racers can run, jog or walk.  Plan on 60 minutes to complete the course. 

  6. Unsure of a teammate? No worries, team members can be added or substituted on race day.

  7. There's no reason to leave family and friends at home. Spectators are welcome to tag along for free to cheer on the racers and take photos for the scrapbook.   

  8. Celebrate someone's special day in a wild way! Our birthday party space can accommodate a maximum of 25 teams. Space fills quickly so don't delay.

  9. Reminder, this is a rain or shine event!
