Amazing Race is rightly regarded as the brilliant “all rounder” of team building, because it works so well for every type of group. This event is not exactly like the TV show, it is more like a scavenger hunt with clues, checkpoints and varied activities and the focus is firmly on fun. Compared to the show, the challenges are not intimidating and the pace much less frantic.
The Amazing Race includes creative, mental and problem solving tasks, Your facilitator will meet you at the starting point and conduct a warm up with your group in smaller teams, these smaller teams (of around 6-8) leave in intervals. Each of your teams are armed with a folder, map and the clue to the first of 4-5 checkpoints. At each destination the facilitator will brief you on the point scoring challenges and activities. Once complete, you receive your clue to the next destination and the race unfolds.
The activities are designed for bonding and engagement rather than intimidation or humiliation. At face value they seem challenging and are easier to complete than it first seems. The tasks require different aptitudes, enabling everyone in the team to shine. Some are observational, some are creative, some mental and some relate to co-ordination. Most have a timed element and all require planning and team work to perform well.
Your Teams will meet up again for a Final challenge being a photo shoot, All teams will receive a digital camera and a list of photos to compose and take. Finishing the Activity at a close by venue teams can relax and wind down after the event while the Facilitator tally's up the score and gives a short presentation that highlights the great team performances while reflecting on the group's achievements before announcing the winning team.
