Based off the popular TV show – The Amazing Race and offered in ALL cities throughout North America. Teams will explore interesting areas and neighborhoods in your city. Your people will have to strategically work together to complete a series of challenges while on the clock. Teams might encounter various roadblocks and obstacles that require problem solving and creativity to move on. Who is going to claim the championship title?
What is the Great Race?
How does it work?
- The Four I’s – Introduction, Icebreaker challenges, Itinerary, setting, Intention setting – this will set your team up for success
- Teams – You can choose your teams or we can do some interesting icebreakers that get people into teams (and working together new people)
- Challenges – Your team will be given a series of clues and challenges that get them exploring the most interesting areas in your chosen city. Challenges can be themed for various neighborhoods (around the world theme) and will require an elegant degree of creativity and problem solving
- Debrief – This is where we revisit the outcomes of the intention setting earlier that day. Did the team achieve what they wanted? Did they meet someone new? What challenges did you face? Did you communicate well? How can we improve? How can we carry these learnings forward?
Whatever the activity, the challenge or event – there will always be various learnings and realizations that come out of the experience. A shared experience is the best way to learn.
Key Outcomes & Benefits:
- Highly collaborative & team oriented
- Communication focused
- Blue Ocean thinking (outside the box problem solving)
- Time management & Planning
- High pressure project execution & Strategy

I am so happy that we worked with you for Capco’s event in Puerto Rico. I really can’t say enough good things about Kerry and his team. They were all incredibly helpful, fun, professional, and just plain great at their jobs. Such amazing attitudes, professionalism, and willingness to adapt. The feedback from participants has been overwhelming, everyone had such a great time.

On behalf of the Management team, I would like to officially Thank You for leading our teams today through “End Hunger Games”! The feedback from our community was overwhelmingly positive and a great way to end our day. The donation to the Food Bank resonated with us all and was the best part of the exercise.
End Hunger Games
I liked that different people can come together quickly when genuine effort is applied. We learned how to work together effectively. Teams can work well together when everyone is given space and opportunity to do what they do best. Teamwork can be achieved in a hectic setting.
Cross Boundary Communication Training
I think interactive experimental learning is a key way of learning. It is fun, gets the mind and body involved in the principles being taught, and creates a team environment that overcomes typical barriers like restlessness, titles, etc.

We learned that communication is key throughout the project to ensure everyone continues to work towards a common goal and stay on track. It was fun! I loved the collaboration – working together to get the job done in a fun way. Everyone plays an important role. Trust the team. Good balance of fun, competition and learning.
