Official website:

   It's all about TEAMWORK!  Since 2012, this fun race features teams of two people racing in competition with other similar age teams. Contestants are directed to perform a variety of mental & physical challenges (together) at multiple stops along the 1.5 mile course. How well you work together is the most important skill to winning the race.

   Walk, jog or run - yet be prepared to get a little dirty & wet. It's a great bonding experience and way more fun than a 5K race!  Waves begin every 10 minutes - kids teams, then adult teams.  

1. Open to all ages - pee wees to grandparents.
2. 2 person teams - adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid ... kids grades K-12..
3. 2 course levels ... recreation (for leisure pace teams) & competitive (for physically active teams).  
4. 4 race divisions ... Grades K-2 / 3-5 / 6-8 / 9-Adult. 
5. 1st place medals are awarded to each division winner.  
6. Plan on 60 minutes to complete course ... race happens rain or shine.

 PEDIATRIC CANCER CHARITY PARTNER: Help us fight pediatric cancer by donating 2 pairs of used sneakers or running shoes at the race ... and receive a 2 minute time eraser token.

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 eight fun-filled challenges spread 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. Challenge stations include varying degrees of difficulty, based on age of participant. 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 are physically active.


Teams consist of two participants: adult/kid, kid/kid or adult/adult. Kindergarten & Pre-K are allowed only if paired with an adult. Active duty, reserves and retired - military, law enforcement and fire ( including spouses) – receive a 50% discount off team entry fee.  Spectators are welcome to tag along for free and take photos for the scrapbook.
