12thOctober 2019, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Mercedes-Benz Challenge presented by Gargash Group and powered by Rush-A-Way is back with its 8thseason offering power-packed and thrilling challenges on 1st

November 2019. The full-day event brings together 100 teams of 2-4 members competing to solve seven exciting challenges that will be located in different hotspots of Dubai. The winners will proudly drive away with a luxurious Mercedes-Benz SUV!

The participants will be up for a whole day of fun and all they need to do is unlock each level of activity to graduate seven levels. Excitement on the day builds up as the activities are only revealed with each completed challenge. Every participant will have to go the extra mile and work as a team to strategize and conclude each stage competently.

This adventurous race aims to stimulate the fitness levels and logical thinking of the participating teams as they explore the city in an unconventional way. Unlike a regular Friday, teams will experience an amazing day out in a Mercedes-Benz car while cruising around the city and taking reality gaming to a whole new level. Participants will be tested on their ability to complete each challenge faster than the other competing teams. Groups honing exceptional communication and navigational skills will have an added advantage.

Advocating and endorsing a fit and active lifestyle, Ivo A. Kapitzki – General Manager, Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars says “We have crafted this event in a format for participants to have a memorable day out challenging their endurance levels and team chemistry while having fun discovering individual potentials. As we approach season 8, we are extremely excited to see a growing number of teams register and participants preparing for an incredible weekend.”  

All participants should be above the age of 18 and must have a Mercedes-Benz to cruise around the city during the challenges. In previous seasons, the teams had to undergo diverse tasks and challenges including paddle-boarding, tackling an obstacle course, getting through an escape game, hitting targets in an archery arcade and speeding on go-karting circuits.

How does it work?         

100 teams of 2-4 members will compete to go through 7 specially-crafted challenges, set up around Dubai.  For each challenge, teams will earn points based on how quickly they complete it. After completing each challenge, teams will receive location details for their next challenge. Team with the highest score at finish line wins the grand prize – A brand new Mercedes-Benz GLC 200.
