2. RACE DESCRIPTION:This rain or shine event pits teams of two people against each other completing a string of up to eight eight fun-filled challenges spread across a one-mile cross-country course. Each station will contain a SECRET CLUE CARD that instructs each team to complete a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next challenge station. Challenge stations include varying levels of difficulty, based on age of participants. The team that reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time wins. How well you work as a team is the most essential ingredient to winning the race! Waves begin every 10 minutes kids teams, then adult teams.
