Grapevine dads pair up with sons for race

June 13, 2018 by  

All Grapevine fathers and sons are invited to participate in this year’s Amazing Race: Father Son Edition coming in a few days.

Fathers can compete with up to three sons over the age of four. Endurance and teamwork will be the keys to success here.

Teams will be tackling challenges set up along a course. There will be detours and road blocks along the route diverting teams to tasks relating to different countries around the world. Each task is arranged so all members of the team can participate.

Some teams go so far as to don matching T-shirts with their family’s particular graphic design or slogan.

Winners will be the teams that finish the challenges in their particular age group within a certain time.

All teams will surely see themselves as winners and pictures taken at the finish line will make great memories for future poster printing. Proud dads and their cohorts from last year’s race can be viewed on the event’s website.

After the awards ceremony dads and sons can chow down on hotdogs, hamburgers and lots of water.

Tickets run $20 per team and must be purchased online. No tickets will be available at the site.

The Father and Son Amazing Race will have warm-ups and check-in beginning at 7:30 am on June 9th at Parr Park, 310 Parr Lane. The race will kick-off at 8:00 am with an awards ceremony at 11:00 am.
