The Big Smuggle Family Adventure Race

Saturday, September 3rd

Participate as a family of 3, 4, or 5 people (ages 5 & older, each team may have no more than 2 adults 21 & older).
Families navigate a race course with several stations before returning to complete the Awesome Obstacle Course. At each station, families have the chance to win gold medallions by trying or completing the station challenge. There is no "right way" to complete the course; every family can choose their own race route through our resort. You'll receive a map indicating all station locations and smuggling satchel to keep your medallions in. Begin by developing your strategy ... and you're off on your adventure! The family that has the most coins upon completion of the course wins! Bonus coins given for families who finish the course in the quickest times.

Starting location & check in
Your challenge will begin on the Village Green. There are several challenges spread out in stations across the resort grounds. Pick the order in which you would like to move through the stations. Race sign-up is also on the Village Green on Saturday, September 3rd between 1:15 pm - 1:45 pm. There will be a race meeting at 2:00 pm where maps and satchels will be distributed. Families will then have time to strategize and plan their route.

Stations & race course
At each station, there is a challenge that your family must try to complete. Depending on how well you do, you will be given Smugglers' golden medallions to place in your smuggling satchel. As you move through the challenges, your goal is to collect as many medallions as possible.

Obstacle course
The final challenge prior to the finish line is to complete the Awesome Obstacle Course. The course is about 200 feet long and has elements for every age and ability level of your family. Once you finish the course, cross the finish line to weigh your golden medallions. Most gold wins!

Families can go to any station at any time. Planning a good route is key to finishing in time! If you encounter a station that has more than three families already there, you will either have to wait for your turn, or move on to the next station. Race teams will have until 4:00 pm to finish the course. The first families back get bonus coins for a speed bonus!

At the awards ceremony at 4:15 pm, there will be prizes and awards presented for the top three families with the most coins.

We look forward to welcoming you for a weekend of family fun!
