Tim Hague, Sr. and Tim Hague, Jr. are a Father & Son team and the Official Winners of The Amazing Race Canada 1.

They struggled from the very beginning of the season, being one of only two teams who did not properly read the clue at the Butterfly Conservatory in the first leg, and were a very mistake-prone team, almost getting themselves eliminated twice if not for the Non-Elimination legs. Despite this, and several of the other teams not wanting them in the Race, they managed to stumble their way into the Final 3. In Toronto, they gained a huge lead in the Needle in a Haystack Caramilk Chocolate Bar search, looking like they were going to luck their way to a victory, only to lose their lead by wandering around the Toronto Zoo for an hour and a half. They hit the Final Roadblock in last, but thanks to the attentiveness of Tim Sr. in remembering the flowers worn by the Pit Stop Greeters during the season, they were able to pass the other teams and win the race.

Tim Sr.'s wife Sheryl, and mother to Tim Jr., had the idea that this father and son duo would make a great team for THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. As the eldest of four children, Tim Jr. and his father spend a lot of time together and he shares his father 's positive outlook. "I relish the chance to work with my dad," says Tim Jr. "We get along great but we have never truly pushed each other. I can't wait to do that."

Three years ago Tim Sr. was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, which he has attacked with incredible optimism. Tim Sr. refuses to yield to the condition, and states "It doesn't mean you can't still compete...or have to go quietly into the night." Currently Tim Sr. has completed a triathlon, and multiple half marathons, with his sights on many more this summer, while Tim Jr. just completed his first half marathon.

This energetic and highly confident pair has never travelled east of Manitoba, and hope to see Quebec City as one of the destinations on the Race.

Motto: "Just because you've been given a diagnosis does not mean the end of your life."
How will they plan to win The Race: "Have an amazingly fun time and see how far we can get. Build each other up at all times!"
Number one roadblock as team: "Both of us have pretty strong personalities so it will be a challenge to make sure we're always positive with each other."
