Race Across Hendricks County

Race Across Hendricks County Park Logo


Race Across Hendricks County is "The Amazing Race," Hendricks County style! Teams of 2 participate in 3 challenges at participating parks throughout Hendricks County. The team who completes all required challenges at each park in the shortest amount of time wins!

Each park contains both physical and mental challenges. Participants receive a Race Across Hendricks County t-shirt, race swag bag, lunch, and dinner. There are also individual park awards, division awards, and a grand prize of $300.

This event is open to all residents of Hendricks County and BEYOND!

You must be at least 14 years old to participate and each team MUST have one member who is 18 or over.  


What does a typical RAHC day look like? 

9:00am – Start time.

Your adventure begins at one of the four parks across Hendricks County.

You will receive a passport with a map and a brief description of each park challenge. Next, choose 3 challenges and try to complete them as quickly as possible. Beware: each park contains roadblocks for two teams, drawn at random. The unlucky roadblock winners will face an additional obstacle during their time at that park.  

Once you've completed your challenges, hop in your car and head off to the next park on the list. Repeat!

11:30am - 12:30pm – Lunch.

1:00pm – Race resumes.

Visit the last two parks and complete their challenges.

5:00pm – Dinner and Awards

After all challenges are completed, teams gather at a central location (usually the Washington Township Park Pavilion) for dinner, awards, and general fun!

What are the challenges like?  

They vary from the grueling and physical to mentally taxing. Past events have included obstacle courses, mud pie slinging, slip and slides, trivia challenges, and puzzles. And every once in a while we like to combine them to really mix things up!!    


Do you need to be a marathon runner to do these challenges?  

Absolutely NOT: you don't even have to be a 1 mile runner :)
