Event Background

The Great Amazing Race came to life in 2010 as a result of combining the Great Pursuit and Melbourne Amazing Race® events. From 2005 – 2009, both the public Great Pursuit and Melbourne Amazing Race® were separate annual events on the events calendar. However as each event gained popularity and attracted more competitors, we felt it was time to combine both events into a larger annual event. Besides hosting the public Great Amazing Race, we also facilitated a large range of exciting corporate team building events for many of the mid to top tier companies and firms in Australia. In 2012, Uplift Events was awarded the winner of the Monash Enterprise Centre Rising Star Award at the Monash Business Awards.

Our first public event was hosted back in December 2005, and since then our public events have grown in size each year attracting over 5,000 competitors in total.

In that time, the funds raised from our public events has been able to support the purchase of a warmer/cooler device for the sophisticated heart-lung machine that takes over the job of a child's heart and lungs during cardiac surgery.
