2019 Amazing Rahway Race

About The Amazing Rahway Race 2019

The Amazing Rahway Race, an event similar to scavenger hunts took place as part of Culture Crawl 2019 on Saturday, September 21st from 1-6pm. Participants assembled teams of 2, 3 or 4 individuals who enjoy puzzle solving and don’t mind some physical activity.

On the day of the race, teams are given a series of clues that require traveling about downtown Rahway, deciphering riddles, internet searches, collecting objects, partaking in challenges and perhaps taking photographs with a digital camera to prove they visited certain spots. Then, teams must return to the start as soon as possible. Competing teams can display their unity and spirit by dressing alike or in outrageous fashion.

The race begins and ends at the Rahway Public Library and takes approximately 2 hours to complete. The cost was $30.00 per team. Each team could have a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 people.

Participants sign a waiver prior to start of race. Minors under age 18 are welcome but permission of a parent or guardian is required—see waiver. At least one team member must be an adult.

The race is a fundraiser sponsored by the Friends of the Rahway Public Library (FRPL), a 501(3c) organization that supports the library and its mission. Find information about becoming part of the FRPL (and all their fun), at 732-581-1464, or on the Friends of Rahway Library Facebook page.
