The Most Amazing Race

The Salvation Army’s Most Amazing Race is an annual city-wide challenge race held in and around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a Saturday each Fall. Patterned after the CBS show “The Amazing Race,” this Most Amazing Race combines challenges that are physical (kayaking, running, rock climbing), mental (puzzle solving, strategizing), and sometimes even silly (singing, eating contests), which scatters teams of two all over Pittsburgh in an effort to win their share of the $5,000 cash prize pool! Fantastic prizes are also awarded to the Top Fundraising teams.

From the starting line, teams are given a clue leading them to another checkpoint and they must successfully complete challenges—following clues—until they reach the end of the race. The conclusion of the race involves a check presentation to the winning team as well as prizes to other top performing teams. Teams must raise funds to benefit The Salvation Army’s youth programming in order to qualify for the race, and are awarded advantages in the race and great prizes for being among the top fundraisers.
