Mark your calendars and form teams of family and friends now to compete in the “Amazing Race – Family Edition” on Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Fashioned after the race on the televised show, teams will race around the Port Aransas Community Park through the Port Aransas Nature Preserve at Charlie’s Pasture.
Teams will compete head-to-head with other teams in challenges like disc golf or basketball. They will avoid detours while hunting for treasures, tossing water balloons and working through road blocks that will test the skills and determination of each team member, according to organizers.
Teams must have at least four members, but not more than six. All teams must have at least one member over 18. All team members must be older than 11.
Organizers said that not all team members will compete in the same challenge, road block or detour.
They recommend that entrants wear clothes that are OK to get dirty and wet. Participants may want to bring towels and swimsuits.
The limit of participants is six teams of up to six members.
Registration is required. To register, go to porta.recdesk.com.
The “Amazing Race – Family Edition” is sponsored by the City of Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Department.
