The race will span from Woodstock to Grand Falls.  Similar to the popular TV show, teams will complete challenges in the communities along the way. Our goal is to help raise awareness as well as funds to aid autism families in our communities. The event will be held Saturday, August 18th. This race is open to ALL!!  Register for some family fun and team bonding!

Where will the race take place?

There will be an individual or group challenge in 7 different communities including Woodstock, Hartland, Florenceville-Bristol, Centreville, Perth-Andover, Plaster Rock and Grand Falls.

We suggest you dress in comfortable clothing and in sneakers/running shoes. Be sure to check the weather so that you may dress accordingly.

What about the weather?

How long will the event be?

The time it takes to complete the race will depend on how long it takes for your team to complete the challenges. We estimate that the race will take 3 hours in total.

Whether first place or last, the real winners will be our Autism Families. ALL funds will go to aiding these families in your hometowns and neighbouring communities.

This event allows our communities to come together for a great cause. If your family, friends, co-workers or church group is up for the challenge, contact us!
