Apple-Azing Race: “The Complete idiots guide to working out with a partner” by Aimee Labrecque Challenge

We are now going to move on from the ‘Animal Farm’ Challenge to “The Complete Idiots Guide to Working Out with a Partner” Challenge.


All photo’s on this blog post were taken by Michelle Cross Photography.  Michelle did a fantastic job shooting each event so I’ll be able ‘illustrate’ each challenge for you!  If you want to order any photo’s from the race follow these instructions:

  1. go to www.michellecrossphotography.blogspot.com
  2. Click ‘clients’
  3. Click ‘Apple-Azing Race Gallery’

Each challenge was named after a book to follow along with the fact that we were raising money for the Poynette Area Public Library. I’m going to blog about each challenge – the clue to find the challenge, the challenge itself and exactly what each team had to do at each challenge.


When teams finished up at Creek Bed Country Farmacy they were given their next clue:

The Complete idiots guide to working out with a partner” by Aimee Labrecque Challenge Clue

Tires, blueberry bushes and monkey bars – find your way to your next obstacle of a challenge.

Decide on 2 team members that will participate in this challenge.

This clue was given to them with a little apple key chain attached which hopefully made the teams realize the needed to come back to the apple orchard – specifically the playground area at the orchard.

Once they arrived back to the orchard, they headed to the tractor tire playground where they received their challenge:

***Penalties will be given out for mistakes made, obstacles missed, or incomplete tasks per the discretion of the challenge judge.

Two members of your team will complete the obstacle course. We will average the two times to give you your overall time for the event.

Blow your whistle to indicate you are finished with your leg of the Obstacle Course. Partner repeats the tasks listed above. Your times will be averaged.
