Amazing Race Wollongong

The Amazing Race Wollongong is back this year for an action-packed day, uniting local businesses with the community. Just like in the Amazing Race seen on TV, teams will be challenged with clues, problems and the pressure of time.

Teams will race from check point to check point experiencing tasks and activities that will challenge and entertain. Organisers are keeping tight-lipped about what’s in store for those taking part in the 2017 race this year, but it’s sure to be fun.

The event will kick off at the Novotel Northbeach at 12.30pm and teams will have approximately 3 hours to get through around 20 checkpoints in and around Wollongong.  All check points and challenges will be reachable on foot or via the free  Gong Shuttle Bus. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third placed teams, best dressed and highest fundraising teams.

Over the last seven years, The Amazing Race Wollongong has become a significant event in Wollongong’s calendar. Our aim with this event is to showcase local Wollongong businesses and locations, whilst raising much needed funds for Charity. This year’s goal is $30,000.

The charities that will benefit from the event are;

With 100% of funds raised going directly to these charities. The event provides great exposure for business and corporate teams and checkpoint sponsors.
