The Great Amazing Race is an exciting skills competition in which teams of two people (adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid) race against other teams of similar age, completing a 1.5 mile cross country course speckled with up to 8 fun-filled outdoor challenges. Cards provided at each station instruct teams to complete a variety of fun-filled physical and mental challenges, before advancing to the next station.
Walkers, joggers and runners may participate. Participants can choose either the recreation or competitive course. Waves begin every 10 minutes – kids team, then adult teams, Be prepared to get a little dirty and wet – it’s part of the fun.
The race is serving as a fundraiser for Lutheran Campus Ministry – Morris, while also working with the Max Cure Foundation, which has raised over $2 million dollars to fight against pediatric cancer. Teams that donate 2 pairs of used sneakers for pediatric cancer will receive a free 2 minute time eraser token. Local schools, teams and clubs can use the race as a fundraiser and earn $1,000.
