OVERVIEW: Flying Colors Sports is proud to present the GREAT AMAZING RACE for YOUTH to build healthier and more active families! Touring all NFL cities in 2012, we are committed to providing opportunities for youth to get active and experience the thrill of running in a fun and exciting environment.

WHAT: Patterned after the popular television show The Amazing Race, teams of 2 people (adult/kid, kid/kid or adult /adult) will race around a 1 mile cross country course that includes up to 8 fun-filled stations. The clue cards provided at each station directs the team to perform a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next station. The team that completes the tasks and reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time is declared the winner. Contestants should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet - it's part of the fun!
To ensure fairness and safety of all involved, some of the tasks are slightly modified for youth and senior participants. The course layout is spectator friendly, to allow family and friends to tag along and take photos for the scrap book. This is a rain or shine event!
