Race for Kids - 2017 - Race for Kids Greater Halifax - 2017


Race for Kids™ is a return to the best adventures of our youth, embracing the carefree days of being a kid and a bonding experience for you and your team.  As you compete in an attempt to the finish line you will  challenge your abilities while raising funds for all children and youth to have the same opportunity.

Your teams of four will compete in 10 themed challenging checkpoints that are fun, interactive and sometimes downright absurd!  Checkpoints will be designed to incorporate activities that focus the mind and challenge the body in a fun way.  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 you've figured out the clues, you will use a map to determine your route between all the checkpoints. After the successful completion of each Checkpoint, you will receive a token with a letter on it. As a final challenge, you must unscramble the letters on the tokens correctly and get to the finish line first! Prizes, fun, games and friends...what better way to spend the day!

What happens AFTER the race? A celebration, of course! There will be great food, drinks, and company! REGISTER NOW!
