The Great Race: Amazing Challenge

By 5:03 PM ,

Last Sunday I took part in The Great Race- which is pretty much the show Amazing Race on a smaller scale and set in Sydney. I'm a fan of the show and think it would be so amazing to be part of it so was pretty excited when my friend sent through an email seeing if I was interested in taking part. This is not a one off race by the way it is run throughout the year by a group adventure company. The race involves racing around China Town, Sydney CBD and around the Harbour Foreshore doing a variety of challenges and tasks competing against a number of other teams. I don't want to give too much away in case you are thinking of doing it but it was so so much fun and I would totally recommend doing it. Not only is it a fun activity to do with your friends but also, as I discovered when I was running around ,a great way to be reminded of what a beautiful city Sydney is. I couldn't help but snap a few pictures of some of the stunning sights:

St Mary's Cathedral

Anyway it was a really fun day (If you are worrying about fitness level needed-don't- I am very unfit and not a fan of running but still found it enjoyable and not too strenuous) and if you are interested in doing it just click here for more info.
