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 or more 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 neighboring communities. If you are interested in participating but do not want to take part in the race, you can do so through a money donation or by coming out to cheer the teams on!

This event will be ending at UVARC this year and we plan on a family fun event so we have our autism families here to help celebrate the AU-mazing racers!

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!

We will be having a “Summer End” party at the end of the race for all families to enjoy with food and fun so you can be here to cheer on the teams that raised funds for our programs and events. Starting at 11am
