Google – The Amazing Race


Create an entirely original Amazing Race on the beaches and parklands of Wollongong for 250 Google staff


Working closely with CWT Events, we were able to open up the creative taps and get the juices flowing during brainstorming phase (the juice was unavailable at the free Google cafeteria).

The challenges begun to take on a retro 80s theme, which we felt would work really well for the technical team. The nostalgia got the better of us, and having to cut down the list of challenges was probably the hardest part!

On the day, the 32 teams rotated through three zones, with 7 challenges from Beach Games, Fear Factor and The Price is Right to M&M Separation Anxiety and Green Thumb (where all produce was donated to local schools). The event finished in a local nightclub with everyone completing a 90s dance routine that would have N*Sync feeling threatened.

What a day!
