From the team that makes fun and ex­cite­ment a sta­ple af­fair with their out-of-the-box ideas and events, comes an­other re­fresh­ing ad­ven­ture that sets the ball rolling in terms of team­work in a cor­po­rate sphere.

The Rush-A-Way Cor­po­rate Chal­lenge, pre­sented by LivFit from Oman In­sur­ance, prom­ises to be a unique team out­ing for strength­en­ing team bonds and net­work­ing.

This is a unique half-day event for the lo­cal cor­po­rate com­mu­nity, which ap­plies game con­cept to boost team per­for­mance while cre­at­ing a plat­form to con­nect like­minded pro­fes­sion­als. Team­work will be the buzz­word as teams from 50 or­gan­i­sa­tions com­pete to face var­i­ous un­con­ven­tional tasks setup around Dubai.

The event takes place on Satur­day, Septem­ber 22 and is pre­sented by LivFit from Oman In­sur­ance. LivFit is a well­ness pro­gramme from Oman In­sur­ance Com­pany which aims to em­power in­di­vid­u­als to take charge of their phys­i­cal and men­tal well­be­ing and to make pos­i­tive lifestyle choices.

The seven ex­hil­a­rat­ing chal­lenges won’t be dis­closed un­til the race be­gins which adds to the mys­tique and the thrill of an­tic­i­pa­tion. The chal­lenges are de­signed to test team’s quick think­ing, stamina, logic, speed and plan­ning abil­i­ties. The past events have seen teams fac­ing chal­lenges of var­i­ous gen­res, in­clud­ing over­com­ing an ob­sta­cle course, hop­ping onto pad­dle­boards in the sea to re­trieve clues, gokart­ing, play­ing drums in sync and even fac­ing an es­cape game setup in a mall.

All chal­lenges will be new and will pro­vide the team with not just a dose of fun and ad­ven­ture, but will act as a won­der­ful in­cu­ba­tion ground for a host of skills that are sought after to suc­ceed in the cor­po­rate world. The event will not only tests the par­tic­i­pants on at­tributes such as fit­ness, logic, ac­cu­racy, per­se­ver­ance and nav­i­ga­tion, but also make team dy­nam­ics, work­ing as a driv­ing force, all in a great day out.

Ex­cite­ment will be en­sured by the fact that over 50 or­gan­i­sa­tions and 600 pro­fes­sion­als will com­pete against one an­other to win the Grand Ti­tle. While every­body goes home a win­ner, the award cat­e­gories in­clude Best Team for the team that scored most points, Best Per­form­ing Com­pany Award for the com­pany whose top three teams have the high­est av­er­age points, Ex­cel­lence Award for the com­pany with high­est num­ber of par­tic­i­pat­ing teams and LivFit Award for the team win­ning the LivFit chal­lenge.

As the sites for the var­i­ous chal­lenges could be some dis­tance apart, the mode of com­mute for the event will be by car.

Teams will need a smart­phone with a 3G/4G con­nec­tion to ac­cess the ap­pli­ca­tion on the Rush-A-Way web­site and use the GPS to nav­i­gate be­tween lo­ca­tions.

As is the case with every good thing, time is the essence to regis­ter for this ex­cit­ing team event. There are limited spots avail­able for un­lim­ited fun.
