Event description


Get ready for the Ultimate ‘Cuse Challenge!

This summer Syracuse businesses have a special opportunity that will benefit employees, teams and the community. Business teams are invited to participate in an Amazing Race team building event, the Ultimate Cuse Challenge, taking place Wednesday, June 19th from 1pm-5pm.

“We have an amazing city you are going to explore. You are going to need to have leadership, to work together and… for sure you are going to have fun!”

– Ben Walsh, Syracuse Mayor

The event uses a smartphone app which integrates maps, photos, videos, digital stickers, multiple choice, and QR codes. In small teams, participants use the app to locate and complete a variety of checkpoints along with “on the go” challenges completed anywhere on the course. Teams may travel via foot, bike or vehicle.

“Our goal is to use our business experience combined with the love of our community to offer something special to the Syracuse business community. We have a great course designed that will offer a great experience for Syracuse business teams.”

– Brenda Moore, GDI Leader, and Ultimate Cuse Challenge Event Director
