The Great Canadian Race Team Building

Ideal for Sales Rallies, Corporate Events,
Executive Retreats & Luxury Team Building

Available in Ontario (Toronto, Niagara-on-the-Lake, York Region, Elora, Barrie)
Quebec ( Montreal, Mont Tremblant)

The Great Canadian Race is inspired by the popular CBS TV show. It is available as:

  • a facilitated business team building simulations
  • a stand alone event for team recreation
  • to kick off your executive retreats, sales rallies, executive team building sessions, corporate events, and sales incentive trips.

Each and every race is customized to fit your budget and time parametres. While we have pulled this event together on very short notice, it involves a lot of logistics. For optimal results, we HIGHLY recommend at least a month for event planning and logistics. We also recommend a full day if you require debriefing and business applications after the race and at least half a day if your team building is strictly recreational.

Nobody gets eliminated!!
