Key Facts

The Amazing Race team building event will see your delegates divided into teams of approximately 7 people per team

Each team will be issued with a map and clues to the “roadblock” activity sites hidden around the local area.

Teams aim to earn maximum points at each roadblock before moving onto the next site. We have a huge list of activity site options designed to suit your team, event location and your budget.

Often this event is tailored to suit particular conference themes and outcomes; we have a vast array of ideas on how this can be achieved.

The first team to the finish location is not necessarily the winner, instead the winning team is determined by the number of points accumulated.

Example Roadblock Challenges

Number Triangle
Nine numbered tiles are laid out in a triangle shape. The team moves the tiles so that the addition of the numbers is equal on each side.

Catapults
Teams fire tennis balls via replicated catapults towards a landing zone where strategically positioned team members await ready to catch.

Eddy the Egg
Teams construct a space capsule device out of (biodegradable) straws and tape to catch a raw egg dropped from 2 metres.

Pyramids
Teams are racing to rebuild a pyramid that can only be structured from bottom to top.

Nailed It
It appears impossible however if you think outside the square you can balance 12 nails on just one nail head.

And more!

Although it is called the ‘Amazing Race’, the winning team is not the first to make it to the finish line. Instead, the winning team is determined by the number of points accumulated by each team. The physicality of the event & checkpoints will be tailored to suit your group. We’ll also ensure there’s ample time for teams to make it between the various check-points so there’s no need for your group to be running between checkpoints.

If it’s only drizzling and you would still like to proceed outdoors, we will come along with emergency ponchos for your group to use. Should proceeding outdoors not be feasible, we will supply a wet weather back up event; we simply need an indoor location to host this in. Usually the indoor location is your conference room or your office.

We will come along with gold Pinnacle medallions for the winning team. It is totally up to you whether you would like to provide additional prizes. We suggest keeping the monetary value to a minimum e.g. boxes of chocolates, bottles of wine, movie vouchers.
