Family Fun

Amazing Race Pitstop
Amazing Race Start
Happy Family

Families are foremost in our plans, so we will have fun stuff including, as last year, strider races (for 4-and-unders), and short sprints (10-and-under).

We are adding face-painting and a Five Senses Scavenger Hunt (for kids 9-and-under), where they will get a list and a bag to collect their finds.

Every kid registered for one of the events will receive a medal (see below), and a goodie bag. Registration on the day will be in front of the Slifer office; a parent or guardian will need to sign a waiver for each child in any of the events for kids.

“Touch-a-Truck”: Kids love big trucks! Police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and those who operate big rigs and machinery like backhoes and snowcats certainly love showing off their vehicles to wide-eyed youngsters. Don’t let your kiddos miss it!

Of course, our 4th annual Amazing Race is very much a family affair! Join us for a casual, social, semi-competitive, team treasure hunt, in and around Eagle Ranch. The new course is 5 miles with 8 pit stops and 7 clues to solve, almost entirely on paved bike paths. It should take between 1 and 2 hours to complete (by bike) – perfect for families with kids and those just out for fun. Every finisher ‘wins’ a medal (see below)!
