A couple of new things are happening with Race for Kids this year: you can register your team in either the competitive stream, or the non-competitive stream. What is the difference? Well, the competitive stream is exactly the same as it has always been, except that this year, the checkpoints will be even more fun! The non-competitive stream will be a shorter race, with easier checkpoints and challenges!!
Also new this year - you can include up to 2 children or youth ages 8 years old and over in either the competitive or the non-competitive streams! Very exciting:)
The Race for Kids 2019 Rule Sheet will be posted soon - watch for it!!
Race for Kids is a return to the best adventures of childhood, embracing the carefree days of being a kid, and a bonding experience for you and your team as you challenge your skills while raising funds for boys and girls to have the same opportunity.
Your teams of four will compete in 10 themed challenging checkpoints in a race to the finish line. Checkpoints will be designed to incorporate activities that focus the mind and challenge the body. Challenges are not based on athletic prowess or mental superiority; rather, they are designed for fun and building teamwork. Think of it as the perfect combination between The Amazing Race and Minute to Win It.
Each team will be provided with 10 clues, one for each checkpoint to identify the location of the checkpoint. Once the team has figured out the clues, the team will use a map to determine their route between all the checkpoints. After the successful completion of each checkpoint, the team will receive a token with a letter on it. As a final challenge, each team must unscramble the letters on the tokens correctly and get to the finish line first! Prizes for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers, the top individual fundraiser, the top fundraising team, the last or middle place finisher and the best dressed team!! At the end of the race, join us in a post-event celebration. There will be food, drinks and some great entertainment!
