  This skills competition is about fun, wellness and testing your 2 persons teamwork skills against other similar age teams. Since 2011, racers ages 5 to 85 have been pairing up with family members, friends and co-workers to support the fight against pediatric cancer.  Walk, jog or run ~ this race is way more fun than a 5k race!  

  Modeled after the popular TV show, 2 person teams complete a 1.5 mile XC course with a string of fun-filled physical & mental challenges every 300 yards. Clue cards at each station describe a task  (game, relay, obstacle, etc.) that requires the cooperation of both racers in order to complete (aka ~Teamwork), before advancing to the next station. The top finishers in each age group are declared the winners. 

1. Ages: Open for ages 5 to 85 ... walkers, joggers and runners.

2. Teams: Teams consist of 2 persons ... adult/adult, adult/kid or kid/kid.

3. Courses: Recreation course for leisure pace teams / Competitive course for physically active teams.

4. Race Divisions: Based on the age/grade of the younger team member. (Grades  K-3 / Grades 4-8 / Grades 9- Age 39 / Ages 40 & older.)

5. Waves: Waves begin every 10 minutes – kids’ teams, then adult teams.
