April 03, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Real Race, an adventure travel tour and competition will depart Sydney, Australia, on 7 August, 2006 for 17 days. 24 competitors from around the world will be racing around Australia; they will have no idea where they are going, what dangers and challenges they'll face or how the journey will affect their lives.

The Real Race is not a reality TV show: The Real Race is a real race, with real people and real challenges. The competition will offer non-stop amazing adventures and mind-boggling experiences in a competitive but safe and fun environment. Best of all, the victorious team will do it all for free winning back the cost of the entire trip.

The concept is quite simple: Twelve teams of two will travel around Australia, performing tasks and accumulating points based on their performance. In this race there are no losers and no nasty eliminations. Every contestant wins, just by taking part in The Real Race, a thrilling and fun once-in-a-lifetime adventure experience.

Australia was chosen to host the race because of the country’s outstanding natural beauty and diversity of terrain. It's a country with some of the world’s greatest snowy mountains, beautiful beaches, barrier reefs, deserts, rainforests, world heritage parks and so much more. The Real Race team has travelled the world, and with their experience in adventure tourism they all agree that Australia is the greatest location for the first Real Race.

“This is an extremely exciting experience for anyone who has the passion to win, possesses the 'travel bug', enjoys being challenged, has good spirit, and is a never-give-up person. Successful applicants will also be fair players, who are willing to take risks, enjoy the moment and are passionate about new adventures” says Amber Newton, co-founder and Real Race organiser.

At the end of the compelling race competitors will enjoy a chilled out, relaxing and pampering few days at one of the best beach resorts Australia has to offer, which is included in part of the package.
