How does an amazing race work?

Amazing race Team Building Activities ideas are based on the American adventure reality show. Races are split into legs – with each leg requiring teams to deduce clues and navigate through challenges. You can read more about the development of the concept on Wikipedia.

The amazing races can be app-based or paper based. Some amazing races use public transport. Some others need you to drive your car. However, mostly you will be on foot. There are loads of options and you can choose the one that suits you. It all depends on which race you choose. And we have plenty to choose from.

Some amazing race events include roadblocks, delays. Some even have a chance to sabotage another team. There are many twists and turns. Your team needs to work together. If you have a shared vision, they can celebrate each individual win. Your aim is to be the winner at the end.

Benefits for your team

  • Competition

Your team may not even realise just how many skills they are using. This is discussed further in an article – 10 Reason Highlighting The Importance of Team Building.

We said it is competitive and not collaborative. Well that’s not exactly correct. It is both. Teams will collaborate together. They will try to get the best results possible, working together to do it. And of course, come out as a winner. But the need to collaborate comes from competition. What does that mean? Just like the game show, participants are broken into teams. Participants need to collaborate in an amazing race. Teams work together to solve challenges and locate checkpoints. They then move onto the next location to achieve the goals. It is important to:

  • Interact and work as a team
  • Be efficient and positive to move to the next stage
  • Work as a team to win the race.
As people become more and more specialised in their roles, collaboration becomes more important. Collaboration in the workplace makes team work successful. Read this great article on 7 reasons why collaboration is important to give you further insight on this.

The amazing race is designed for everyone. It’s not about the fastest. It’s about who can solve the clues, build things, interact with the public. They need to complete many other challenges. The amazing race team building really does have something for everyone.
