Melbourne Amazing Race® Testimonials

PWC Team Event“A huge thank you for hosting our most recent social event, The Melbourne Amazing Race®. You guys did an awesome job, and were incredibly accommodating especially catering for such a big group. The day was very well organised, the race was creative and certainly kept us on our toes.

The fact that on Monday morning people were STILL talking about how much fun they had is a reflection of your wonderful efforts

Once again, thank you!!!”

Serena – PricewaterhouseCoopers

George Weston Team Event“Just a quick note to thank you and your for your AMAZING efforts in pulling together our Melbourne Amazing Race® on 7th September.

Right from the initial contact until the last team crossed the mat, everything ran smoothly and no request was ever too much.

Your professionalism, knowledge and coordination of our 75+ group was brilliant – you certainly helped to achieve one of our aims of the National Sales Conference and that was to help build on a collaborative team and get people talking who have never met each other before.

As an ice-breaker to the beginning of our conference – the rest of the conference was highly productive and very engaging from each of our market groups, despite a few who pulled up a bit sore the morning after.

Being able to arrange such an event whilst in Sydney and you in Melbourne and it still was very professional and enjoyable is an absolute credit to yourself and Uplift Events.

We will definitely use Uplift Events again and will recommend anyone do the same. The cost, the organisation and the completion of the entire event was nothing short of AMAZING!!

Thanks again”

Joanne (Executive Assistant) – Jasol

Coles Team Event“Many thanks to you and your team for organising the Amazing Race team build event for Coles Logistics last week. The feedback from the whole team has been incredibly positive, with the event providing a fantastic talking point during dinner that evening.
I was particularly impressed with your ability to adapt/accommodate the many last minute changes we threw your way, from the constantly changing headcount to the delay in the start time. Your team took everything in their stride, and were an absolute pleasure to work with. They’d make excellent logisticians.I would absolutely recommend your company to anyone contemplating hosting a fun, active team build event, and sincerely hope to have the pleasure of working with you again in the future.
Please keep me informed of any new initiatives you may have in development.”
Shona (National Transport and Contract Manager) – Coles Supermarkets

Uplift Events’ the Melbourne Amazing Race® is based on Channel 7’s TV series ‘The Amazing Race’, with the difference being that teams race around the Melbourne CBD instead of around the world. It is also the only original and true Melbourne Amazing Race® being a registered trademark event owned exclusively by Uplift Events.

In the Melbourne Amazing Race®, teams make their way to iconic Melbourne landmarks and locations encountering Decision (Detour) and Obstacle (Roadblock) challenges as they race around the Melbourne CBD to finish as the number one team. As teams race from one location to another, they will have to solve clues and navigate their way around the Melbourne CBD either by foot or public transport, making key decisions on the best and quickest route. At each of the locations, teams will then have to work together to perform a variety of different activities or tasks designed to test their teamwork, problem solving, communication and decision making in order to receive the clue to their next location.
