“Intrepid teams will utilize Samui’s range of transport options and set off with a budget for transport, their first instructions and a map. Navigating their way through uncharted territory, they will discover strange places and amazing sights and compete in local challenges with a traditional flavour. Along the way they will interact and negotiate with the locals to bring artifacts from their travels.”

The group will be divided into teams of up to ten participants. Each team will be provided with an envelope with route instructions for their first destination, and directions for the Amazing Chase. Upon reaching the first destination, a new envelope with challenge information is handed to the team, so along the way they will compete in a series of task based challenges.
Challenges reflect the local flavour of the destination. Some may last for only a few minutes, others may be complex learning problems that keep teams working for up to an hour! In any case, they are always exciting and promise spectacular new experiences. Longer tasks include making a fruit or soap carving, playing Thai music, preparing exotic Thai food or locating, negotiating for and buying a hard to find item. Other teams may get wet in one of the many waterfalls, learning a monk’s chant, counting the Buddha’s, flying a kite at one of the many beaches or putting on a Thai puppet show.

As they explore, the teams will get the chance to visit some of the most important and interesting sites around this beautiful island, including Big Buddha, Hin Ta Hin Yai and Chaweng Beach.
At each location, a challenge involves interaction with locals in a traditional cultural event or task. The execution of the challenges may be solo tasks (Road Blocks), group tasks (Speed Bumps) or multi-group tasks (Intersections) and teams can move on after completing the challenge.
At various places during the race, teams will have to arrive at checkpoints. The last team at a checkpoint may be penalised with a ‘speed bump’ or extra challenge before they can continue with the race. The winning team is the first back at the final checkpoint.
Insurance and instructor supervision at all times is an important safety factor, and in the event of an emergency of team member withdrawal, transport and medical backup will be standing by.
Pre-briefing with survival skills training and tips, and debriefing and analysis lead by instructors will form a part of the process, both to enhance the learning outcomes and experiences of the delegates, and to ensure that the team works together is empowered to overcome the challenges it faces.
Starting with a four hour half day option, this challenge can be expanded to a twenty four hour event including one night away.
For those seeking a greater survivor challenge, an event of two days and two nights gives plenty of time to experience leaving civilisation behind, or for the ultimate adventure, several days marooned on your own private island!
