  Modeled after the popular television show "THE AMAZING RACE", teams of two people 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 team-oriented tasks (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) 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 are the 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. Racers can choose a Recreation Pace (for those who prefer to walk or jog) or Competitive Pace (for those who prefer to run).
   4. Challenge stations include varying levels of difficulty, based on age and level of the participants. Beginners can choose the easier course, while veteran teams will complete the more difficult challenges.
   5. Unsure of a teammate? No worries, team members can be added or substituted on race day. 
   6. Plan on 60 minutes to complete the course. Reminder, this is a rain or shine event!
   7. Racers can also purchase a Mulligan/Time-Saver Pass.  This pass allows the team to reject a "start or do over penalty" and be given a second chance to continue completing a challenge.  The pass can be used one time on the course.
   8. 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.
   9. 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.
