Loosely based on the popular reality TV series, the event will see the group divided into travel teams. In order to depart the start area teams must first solve a set of puzzles which will get them their first travel clue. The itinerary can be set up for teams to travel on foot, using local transportation or their own vehicles. Upon arriving at each destination, teams must successfully engage in a challenge of a physical or cognitive nature or sometimes both. Success means moving on although the usual obstacles of a YIELD, DETOUR or the bonus of a FAST FORWARD is always in play.
Teams use their wits and resources to complete the course and be the first to the finish “MAT!”
