WHAT IS the Amazing Charity Race

It is a full day of good natured competition, music and food and laughs. The race committee is laughing itself silly coming up with fun challenges. It is not a triathlon or a 5K race. It is not limited to runners or highly athletic individuals. It is a race in that it has a start and finish line but along the way it challenges the contestants in many ways. It is a fun, quirky, adventure that challenges the contestants agility, balance, coordination, strength, intelligence, problem solving skills, fine motor skills, and most important their sense of humor. You are invited whether it is to compete or join our team of over 500 volunteers.

The Amazing Charity Race started in 2005 as Loveland’s Amazing Race and has grown into one of the biggest races in the whole Cincinnati tristate area!  With a a little bit of this and a little bit of that – we make you walk, run, ride, think and do – all for the fun of it!

On September 3rd, the Amazing Charity Race held their annual awards party when checks were distributed to select charities and all of the organizations who provided volunteers for the event. Dozens of small grants are made to local groups, schools, churches, and teams that help out at the race.

Loveland Magazine is the Media Sponsor of the AMAZING CHARITY RACE.
