                           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!

                          SUPPORTING: The Great Amazing Race series supports the 30-MINUTES-A-DAY family and academic initiative, a national program that encourages parents to be a good ROLE MODEL by participating three daily home activities that have the power to improve a student’s academic performance and family quality of life: physical exercise, reading a book and eating healthy.
