The Amazing Chase | A UBC First


On Thursday, October 25th, UBC Recreation Intramurals is introducing a new event for students called “The Amazing Chase”! The Amazing Chase is an afternoon event where participants run around campus and complete a series of tasks and games that test their problem-solving skills and UBC knowledge, with some help from their smart phones. This event is a play on The Amazing Race. For those who are not familiar, it’s like a scavenger hunt… but with obstacles!

Reasons why should YOU sign-up:

Anyone can participate– you don’t need to be particularly athletic, or know much about campus!
This is a great way to get moving– have fun and learn more about UBC! All you need is a pair of runners and a smartphone.
You only require one other person to compete- teams are made up of two people. There will be snacks after the final challenge, and the winning team will win a big prize pack including two passes to UBC’s Winter Classic, a champ shirt and another surprise … compete to find out!!

What should you bring:

Portable Phone Charger

This could be helpful, or make sure the phone is fully charged before starting!

Layers of Clothing

This event will take place rain or shine! You’ll be running a bit, so you may get warm further along in the race.

Student Card

Like all our events, please bring your student card!
