Great Amazing Race

Grab a partner and head out to the Great Amazing Race! This exciting activity will test your knowledge as well as your physical ability as you compete against other teams for the winning title. Teamwork is key, because both you and your partner must work together to successfully complete each mission.

You’ll walk, jog, run, and even get down and dirty. Do you have what it takes to conquer the Great Amazing Race?

Event Details

The Race will take place at Langan Municipal Park in Mobile, AL on Sunday, December 10, 2017. It will kick off at 3 p.m., but you should arrive an hour early to check-in and pick up your race packet.
