The Great Amazing
Race Charleston, based on the premise of The
Amazing Race TV series, will take place at 2 p.m., January 25, at James
Island County Park to raise funds that support research in pediatric cancer.
Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and the race begins at 2 p.m.(1:15 p.m. check-in). A
medals and award ceremony follows at 3:30 p.m.
Teams of two
people race around a 1.5-mile cross-country course in competition with other
similar age teams. Contestants that arrive at the finish line with fastest
overall times are declared the winners. Clue cards provided at stations along
the course direct teams to complete a task, either together or by a single
member, before continuing. Teamwork is the most important skill to win the race—more
fun than any 5K race.
The race is open to
ages 4 to 84—walkers, joggers or runners. Any two-person combo—adult/adult,
adult/kid or kid/kid. Waves begin every 10 minutes for kids teams and adult
teams. There is a difficult course for adults and active teams and an easier
course for kids and leisure teams. The average time to complete the course is 60
