An ADF families event: The (almost) Amazing Race, Townsville

NOTE: This event is only for Australian Defence Force members and their families, and ADF veterans and their families.



About this Event




ADF members, ADF veterans and families of both in Townsville are invited to enter our next (almost) Amazing race. Jog, walk or even sprint your way through a series of checkpoints and challenges in a race against the clock!

We have teamed with the Totally Tropical Orienteering Club for an afternoon of family fun on Friday 30 October at Jezzine Barracks. We’ll be looking for the best-dressed team with the most original name on the day, so put together your team, dress up and have some fun!

This event is for everyone, including families with prams, teens, couples and single members. Teams are limited to 6 people. As part of Veteran’s Health Week (#VHW2020), entry categories will include: families, units and secondary school students (must be accompanied by an adult).
