Just like the Amazing Race, you will have to perform tasks in order to move around the course, but there’s a difference! Each team member will race in the shoes of another. You might be racing in a wheelchair, with vision impairing glasses or on crutches (all equipment provided). Experience the campus as another student may and be in to win a number of awesome prizes. Teams will finish on C Block Lawn and are rewarded with a lunch voucher.
