The Amazing Race is based on a reality TV game show in which team's, whose members have a pre-existing relationship, race around the world in a competition with other team's. Contestants strive to arrive at "pit stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and avoid coming in last. Coming in last carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg.
Amazing Race can be run in various ways. Traditionally, each team is allocated a vehicle and they travel around the country side exploring various stops as they go. They may be required to milk a cow, shovel hay, solve a puzzle looking through a telescope or race around the race track in fast cars. There is also a township route that explores the shebeens, spaza shops and ‘walkie talkies’ for lunch. Experience the Gautrain route or utilise the trip from the airport to the conference venue – especially enjoyable for foreign guests.
Alternatively, Amazing Race can be set-up to run on-site at a conference venue with a large and varied outdoor area. This option is well suited if you have limited time and are at a stunning venue which the team's can explore. team's will be challenged in archery, giant puzzles, water obstacles and both mental and physical challenges.
Your ability to solve puzzles, communicate and your product knowledge will be tested and only if you have unlocked the desired understanding, will you be able to win this race as a team.
