Engage in some fun fitness for the whole family at this free event in Flushing this weekend.

The Family Adventure Race will take place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Sunday, July 9. A pair of one-hour timed races will feature an obstacle course with 12 activity stations, including a javelin throw, hurdles, basketball free throw and mini climbing wall.

A team must include one parent or guardian and up to two children, open to ages 8-13. Team members must find each station and perform the required exercise together before advancing to the next station. The races will end with a final dash to the finish line.
