Race Alike, Win Alike

It might come as a surprise that the “Second Annual Amazing Mom and Son Challenge” is back this year in June and not in May, to coincide with Mother’s Day weekend. In this event, teams of moms and sons race to designated locations around Delray Beach where they are tasked with a challenge to complete before they can move on to the next leg in the race. No, Dad, this is not for you. Fathers are not invited to participate. The race is open to ages 5 and older,and awards will go to the first team in each age division to conquer the course. There’s also a category for creativity — teams donning silly hats, the more obnoxious the better, can score a “Most Creative Team Hats” award — and you know you’ve always wanted one of those plastered on your office wall. Team captains are to attend a meeting on Thursday, June 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Delray Beach Community Center. On Saturday, the day of the event, sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m., and the race kicks off at 9:30 at the Delray Beach Community Center, located at 50 NW First Ave. A picnic will follow the race. Entry costs $5 per participant. Registration is required by June 21. Call 561-243-7277, or visit mydelraybeach.com/Delray/Events.
