The Great Amazing Race Series is a national family-friendly skills competition for adults & kids grades k-12. It's a D.I.T. (Do-It-Together) modeled after the TV show THE AMAZING RACE. Two-person teams (adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid) in separate age divisions compete against their peers completing a one-mile course speckled with fun outdoor challenges that require teamwork, coordination & smarts. It's way more fun than a 5K!
