UNSW Amazing Race

After a successful inaugural Amazing Race last year, we are bringing back this exciting and challenging event to get your brains and bodies moving!

The UNSW Amazing Race is a team-based challenge for UNSW staff. 

How does it work?

Teams of four staff will race around the Kensington campus completing a set of challenges. Tasks will need to be completed correctly as well as quickly!

Tasks will not be revealed until you arrive at the starting line on the day of your team's heat. You will need your phone and a campus map.

(Hint: It would be to your advantage to also peruse these interactive maps before the race.)

Who can join?

All UNSW staff are eligible to join, so long as you are able to be physically present on Kensington campus for your race. This is a team event - all members of the team must be present and run the race together. Numbers are limited, so get in quick!

How do I register a team?

Grab three colleagues who you'd like to join you for the race. Complete this form to register your team.

When is this happening?

The UNSW Amazing Race will be run in four heats on the following dates:

  1. Tuesday 17 October, 11am
  2. Thursday 19 October, 11am
  3. Tuesday 24 October, 11am
  4. Wednesday 25 October, 11am

Teams will have a maximum of one hour to complete all tasks.

When do registrations open?

Registrations for the UNSW Amazing Race are now open. Complete this form to register your team.


Yes! There will be a prize for the winning team from each heat!

The winning teams from each heat will then go up against each other in the Grand Final in November, to find the Ultimate Champions. 

Check out how much fun we had last year!
