The streets of Melbourne will come alive and become an urban adventure playground on Saturday, 13th of October 2012 as Melbourne’s ultimate urban adventure race comes to town. Raising funds to support the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, up to 800 competitors will run, dance, eat, paddle, tram and train their way through the Great Amazing Race.
This annual event has been running since 2005, and raised over $45,000 to date. Our target this year is to raise over $35,000 through Everyday Hero, with Uplift Events also donating $100 for every 10 teams that register. Competing in teams of 2, competitors will explore the culture of Melbourne using foot or public transport only.
Unlike a marathon or fun run, the Great Amazing Race will have teams deciphering clues and puzzles as they discover the hidden secrets of Melbourne visiting famous landmarks and locations while completing a variety of fun and challenging activities along the way. It’s a fantastic way for the Melburnians to see Melbourne and get outdoors! Watch a YouTube clip of last year’s event here.
With some fantastic prizes up for grabs from the many sponsors, teams may be faced with Dragon Boat racing, Lion Dancing, Speed Stacking, swimming, abseiling, rock climbing, bouldering, parkour or diving off a 10m diving platform. Visit the Melbourne CBD on Saturday the 13th October and you’ll see many teams running around the streets of Melbourne in hilarious costumes all for a great cause!
