What makes Amazing Race Team Event so popular?
Looking for a great and unique way to strengthen the bond between you and your colleagues?
This Amazing Race program is lots of fun, is action packed and is a great team building activity. It is similar to the hit TV show, where teams must compete in a variety of different challenges whilst trying to be the first to the finish line!
The amazing race program builds team unity, strengthens bonds and creates a shared positive experience for everyone.
Teams are allocated a resource kit with cash, clues, directions, camera, emergency phone number and rules for the day.
Following a brief, the race starts with each team receiving their first clue, then they immediately set-off to complete challenges or locate items on their way to finding the first pit stop which is done by way of the fastest and most effective transport using only the resources in their team’s race kit.
After finding the pit stop, in order to receive the next clue, teams will need to complete a detour. A detour is a task where you must choose between two activities – each of which has its pros and cons. As teams progress through the race they will also need to complete a road block. A Road-Block is a task that everyone in the team must perform. If teams elect not to complete the Road block, a time penalty will be incurred.
Throughout the event, teams are required to observe, photograph, video and complete tasks, failure to do so will result in time penalties which can cost valuable time. As such, careful observation and forethought is required during this amazing race, promoting team building through cooperation.
After completing one final Detour teams will receive their final clue with the details to the finish line. The first team across the finish line with all correct and completed mental challenges, and race pack, will be awarded the first place winners’ medals.
This program can be held anywhere such as Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Canberra, Melbourne or regional areas such as the Yarra Valley, Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Macedon Ranges and beyond. The Amazing race is a fantastic activity for team building as it encourages risk taking, improves planning, communication and navigation skills and the ability to follow instructions. Best of all, it’s full of fun and adventure.
