About The Race

Based upon ideas from the hit CBS television series, The Amazing Race, this event is derived from a successful race that organizers in Loveland, Ohio have staged annually for the last eight years. The Amazing Charity Race (formerly Loveland's Amazing Race) has raised almost half a million dollars for charity and now sells all 600+ team slots in less than 12 hours almost a full year in advance! Lake County's Amazing Race for Charity owes a debt of gratitude to the organizers in Ohio (Doug, Martin and company) for their logistical support preparing our very own version. Check out their website for details about the Ohio version.

ABOUT THE AMAZING RACE FOR CHARITY

In the year or two before the first race, which occurred in April 2014, Tim Totten started discussing bringing a race like the one in Loveland, Ohio to Eustis. Once the city agreed, he found the folks he needed to form the board, as well as many very dedicated people that would volunteer to help put on the race.

The board started with Tim Totten, Jill Baker, Tammie Vinson, B.E. Thompson and Eric English. Since then, Eric moved away and we replaced him with Bill Giffing, Jr.

The board continues to do the planning, etc. for the race, along with approximately 300 volunteers each year and many stay on from year to year.

WHAT IS THE AMAZING RACE FOR CHARITY?

2019 Race Location: Eustis, Florida

While the details of the race are kept secret until the week 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 20 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. Awards 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 host 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 for the Finish Line Festival 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.

Racers must be at least 10 years old on race day to participate and their teammate must be a parent or guardian.
