9th Annual Amazing Race for Charity

April 1, 2023 @ 8:30 am 12:00 pm EDT

Amazing Race for Charity

While the details of the race are kept secret until the weekend before the race, we can tell you that past races have averaged between 5 and 6 miles on foot. Along the way, teams of two complete up to 25 challenge stations that may be as simple as solving a puzzle or reciting Miranda Rights to as difficult as building a 2-person tent or rappelling off a tower. While typical runners may take 2+ hours to complete the race, the overall winning times range from 1:30:00 to 1:40:00. The race attracts serious competitors, marathoners, triathletes, adventure racers, and amateurs alike. Bragging rights are given for the fastest times in several categories; male/male, male/female, female/female and parent/child, but many of the participants claim they race for the funky challenges that get thrown their way, like “Blow Putt” and “Shot in the Dark”. At the end of the day, racers have learned a little more about the city, enjoyed an amazing workout, participated as a team and, in some cases, worked with other teams to complete a challenge. Gathered in the park at the Finish Line at the end of the race, participants and volunteers trade smiles and laughs about the day’s challenges, knowing that their wild day has also benefited worthy local charities.
This race has proven to be excellent for parent/child teams.
