Get Up and Go Family Adventure Race

Is your family active, love the outdoors, and just the slightest bit competitive? Then the Get Up and Go Family Adventure Race is the perfect summer activity for you!

Presented by the City Parks Foundation, the Family Adventure Race is a new parent-child race/obstacle course designed to combine basic exercises and sports skills for family fun. Teams must perform the required task before they can move on to the next task.

Some of the activities will include: javelin throwing, jumping rope, basketball free throws, hurdles, and bench push-ups.  Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each age grouping.  All participants who finish the race will receive t-shirts and certificates of completion.

There will be two races, divided by kids ages. Each family team must include at least one parent or guardian and up to 2 kids – both kids must be within the same age range for the race you’ll be entering.

Registration is on a first come, first served basis. To register, click here.
