Amazing Race

Amazing Race


Gather your team, plan your costume and prepare for the ultimate challenge! Each year Macquarie University Sport hosts the Amazing Race - and like the aforementioned reality television series, you will be asked to solve problems, complete challenges and compete against fellow staff and students to be crowned the winner of the campus race!


Teams of four will leave the start point with a map and their first clue which they must crack to determine their destination. At each check point located throughout the campus your team must work quickly together to complete a fun physical or mental challenge in order to gain points and to receive the clue to find your next checkpoint.

This exciting event will allow you to get to know your campus, meet new friends, challenge yourself and have a whole lot of fun while doing it.

Enter as a team of four or as an individual and we will pop you in a team.


The next Amazing Race will run in 2019.
