              RACE DESCRIPTION: Modeled after the popular television show "THE AMAZING RACE", this rain or shine event pits teams of two against other teams in a series of up to 8 (eight) fun-filled challenges across a one-mile cross-country course. Clue cards at each station instructs the teams to complete a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next challenge station. How well you work as a team is the most essential ingredient to winning the race. The team that reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time wins. Contestants should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet - it's part of the fun!

        Teams can choose a recreation pace (those who prefer to walk or jog at a leisure pace) or a competitive pace (those who prefer to run and complete more challenging tasks). The top 25 teams, from each city, qualify for the National Championship Race and a chance to win $2,000!

            SUPPORTING: The race series supports the 30-MINUTES-A-DAY academic initiative, a national program that promotes daily family engagement in three home activities (physical exercise, reading a book and healthy eating) that have the power to improve student's academic performance and family quality of life. We recognize that it is hard to have success at school without a solid foundation at home.
