Synergy Race – the flagship “Amazing Race” type team building activity by änergy
There is something about the age-old game of “treasure hunt”, that compels people to move from one location to another, to “hunt” for a certain item, thereby completing a task.
The American broadcasting television network, CBS certainly knows a thing or two about this thrill, as they have made that childhood game into a reality TV series, popularly known as The Amazing Race. Currently at 22 seasons, and counting, this is one game that builds on the excitement of hunting, doing activities and completing a race.
Many variations have spunned out from this interactive game, and various countries have adopted it and localised the activity for themselves. In the team building community, this is one of our flagship programs, where we have done 400+ races and counting for the past 10 years.
While the concept is similar to the TV show, over here at änergy, the activites are not as death-defying as walking across a tightrope, swimming with crocodlies…or was that from Fear Factor? But to encourage team work and a sense of achievement, we have come up with activities that promotes participation from the team, which are mid-intensity and is suitable for anyone who is able to go to work on a daily basis. Meaning, if going to work is the most physical activity that you do on a regular basis, then the Synergy Race is for you and your colleagues!
Over the past 10 years, we have re-worked this team building activity and have customized races to suit our client’s needs and objectives. One example, is incorporating cultural elements to the race, which is a popular choice for companies who have visiting counterparts from other countries. Not only will the foreign participants get to sight-see in the midst of the race, there are cultural activities such as consuming a local snack, playing a local game, singing a local song that they can do to get a glimpse of local cultures in whichever country the race is held in.
Regardless of the weather, except when there are lightning flashes and howling winds, the activity can still be carried out, as the stations will be located at sheltered areas and each person will be given a piece of poncho each to keep dry. Of course, we have seen participants dashing through the rain in enthusiasm as nothing could deter them from completing the race.
The Synergy Race program is suitable for groups as small as 10 pax or less, to as large a group as 200 pax. Do enquire with us to find out more! write to us at enquiryATsingaporeteambuildingDOTcom.
