Premise

Ten teams, each comprised of four family members, embark on an 11,000-mile race that begins beneath New York's Brooklyn Bridge before heading through the U.S. South, Central America and Canada. The `Family Edition' is the Emmy-winning series' eighth edition and it marks the first time in which team members are all related. It also almost doubles the size of the show's usual participants, from 22 to 40. One thing that remains the same is the grand prize: $1 million.
