01 What is Team Challenge?

Team Challenge is an annual event organised by MRASWA. It consists of activities and challenges designed to promote teamwork, communication, problem-solving and establish trust, respect and appreciation for all team members.   The first edition was held at the Gymkhana Ground, Vacoas in 2013 and ever since, the event has been gaining popularity among all MRA staff. 

02 Who can participate?

Participation is open to all MRA staff, family and friends and a participant can either join an existing team or build a new team. However, the number of teams may be limited. It is advisable for early team registration as this allows the team to have its say in the event organisation.  There is no cap on the number of participants in a team, however a minimum of 10 persons is required to enable competing in the different activities. Every year the nature of participation may change depending on the types of activities and venue. The links provided on the right hand side will give you a glimpse of the event.
