  It's about FUN, WELLNESS and TEAMWORK!  This is your chance to test your "AMAZING RACE" skills while supporting pediatric cancer. Since 2011, contestants have been pairing up with friends, family members and co-workers ~ competing against other similar age teams.  This race caters to all ages and fitness levels.

 Modeled after the TV show, 2 person teams race around a 1.5 mile cross country course speckled with a series of show inspired ATHLETIC & PROBLEM-SOLVING TASKS.
