Testimonial: "What an awesome day my son and I had. My son could not stop talking about it and thanking me for taking him. It has made memories that will last a lifetime!" 

  This skills competition is all about FUN, WELLNESS and TEAMWORK. Since 2011, racers ages 5 to 85 have been pairing up with family members, friends and co-workers testing their 2 persons teamwork skills against other similar age teams. 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 XC course with a string of physical & mental challenge stations every 300 yards. Clue cards at each station describe a task (sports, games, relays, obstacles, etc.) that require problem solving & 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.
