The Wizarding World of Miyazaki!

The time has finally come for the 7th Annual Amazing Race Miyazaki! This is one of our biggest events of the year. Some of you may already be familiar with the American TV show, The Amazing Race. The Amazing Race Miyazaki is loosely based around this televised competition. In this event, teams race to solve clues, complete challenges, and earn points!

Each year, MAJET chooses a new theme and different locations around Miyazaki City for their Challenges to take place, giving participants the chance to discover new secrets about the city. This year, the race will be based in Central Miyazaki, and each Challenge and their Clues will take you on a journey through the wizarding world of Harry Potter!

今年もいよいよやって参りました -MAJETの第7回アメージング・レース宮崎! MAJETのイベントの内でも、もっとも人気なな行事です。アメリカのテレビ番組「The Amazing Race」 と同じ形式で行われ、参加者はチームと一緒に様々なヒントを使って「チャレンジ」を完成させながらゴールまでたどり着かなければならない競争です。 今年のイベントは宮崎市で開催されます!毎年レースの「ヒント」や「チャレンジ」にテーマがあり、今年のテーマは 「ハリーポッター」です!

About the Event – イベントについて

In the Amazing Race Miyazaki, you will compete in teams of 4-5 people. Teams will be composed of both Japanese and foreign participants, as both Japanese and English skills will be needed for the race. Participants may request one other person to race with. Each person needs to submit their own RSVP form. Using the reservations and race-partner requests, MAJET will build the teams in order to ensure an even distribution of Japanese and English speakers in each team.

As a team, you will have to complete Challenges. After completing a given Challenge, the Challenge Master will give you a Clue to the location of the next Challenge. During the race, you will also be able to win points for your team. There are two chances to win – by finishing the race first or by accumulating the most points. These teams will be the winners of the Amazing Race Miyazaki 2017!

アメージング・レース宮崎には、四人チームで参加します。レース中は日本語と英の両方が必要となるので、各チームで日本人と外国人のメンバーを組み合わせます。 参加者はRSVPの際一緒にチームを組みたい1名をリクエストすることができます。RSVPとリクエストを参考にして、MAJETが日本語力と英語力どっちもが十分な4人チームを組み合わせます。各参加者は受付の際自分のフォームを入力しなければなりません。
