January 14, 2011 at 2:00 pm

It is interesting to see how creative certain individuals can be with just a simple nudge to the correct direction. Since the debut of the reality television show ‘Amazing Race’, many people have created their own versions of this all time favourite series, albeit a little twist where the rules are concerned.

As part of their ongoing efforts in attracting visitors to Taman Negara all year through, Rainforest Resort has come up with their own type of ‘Amazing Race’ inspired treasure hunt. Dubbed Rainforest Green Race @ Taman Negara, this event is made possible with the cooperation of Persatuan Pelancongan Kuala Tahan, PERHILITAN, Persatuan Pemandu Pelancong Alam Semulajadi, Persatuan Bot Taman Negara and JKK Kuala Tahan. This race will be held from 21st till 23rd January 2011 and will see participants racing through the lush jungles of Taman Negara. The race will span across approximately 15 to 20 kilometres of the jungle. There will be 6 to 7 checkpoints where the teams are required to check in in order to receive their next assignment. Some of the activities for the race will see the teams trekking through the jungle and going on boats or rafts to get to their next destination.

Those who are interested in participating will have to be in teams of four individuals. An entry fee of RM2,000.00 per team is applicable, which includes room and board for the duration of the race. There are also prize money to be given to the first three teams who successfully completes the race. Closing date for registration of teams is on 17th January 2011.
