More an obstacle course than a race – and participants can go at their own pace – the inaugural edition of the Families On! Challenge will be held in Oconee County, Ga. on Saturday, Sept. 6. Part of a national family race series, the theme is “Everything You Can’t Do At Home.” The Families On! website says: “That’s right, everything your mom once told you not to do, we are going to make happen. Get ready to jump on beds and scribble on walls in epic proportions.”
The event consists of a 2.5-mile course with 16 stations centered around the “Everything You Can’t Do At Home” theme, including:
- Throwing water and food at teammates
- Throwing balls in the house
- Painting on the walls
- Jumping over the “epic-sized” sofa
- Jumping on the bed
- Hurling dishes at the dishwasher
- Letting the bath overflow
- And more!
You race at your own pace, and remember, YOU define your “family,” whether immediate family and relatives, friends, neighbors or co-workers. There will be a “Celebration Station” at the end of the course with live performances, shows, more games and food vendors.
