Natural Awakenings Charleston SC

The Amazing Fundraiser for Kid’s Cancer

Jan 06, 2020 03:39PM ● By Toni Conover

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 minutes.
