Why this event?
Never mind the Indy 500. And forget the Kentucky Derby. Instead, you and your team can participate in the hottest, most contested race of the year – the world-famous Great Pumpkin Race. The quirky annual tradition is celebrated in thousands in communities across America.
This unique seasonal team building program challenges people to collaborate on team concepts, names and racer designs. You can even incorporate business/corporate ideas, including actual or fictitious sponsor logos on your racers. Once everyone’s designs are complete, teams get to actually build and decorate their racers. All racers conform to the Official Great Pumpkin Race Rules. Admittedly, the rules are pretty simple – a street-legal Pumpkin Racer must be made from a pumpkin, and include two independent axles with wheels attached.
Our hand-crafted race kits are fun, easy to assemble and contain everything you need – just add pumpkins. And as a socially-conscious bonus, all kits are assembled and packed by a neurodiverse workforce of young adults enrolled in transition programs across America.
Your TeamBonding facilitator and event team will be on hand throughout to help with decoration, provide racing tips and referee the event. The winners of each group face off in the ultimate duel as they compete for the Grand Champion award. The awards ceremony includes prizes for Best Pit Crew (teamwork), Pumpkin Racer (Design) and fastest farthest Racer.
