The O-Mazing Race
triple j’s breakfast team Matt & Alex, are taking on their drive counterparts Veronica & Lewis in a series of epic O-Week challenges across Australia.
The O-Mazing Race is bang on for triple j’s target as stacks of under 24’s head to Uni for the customary orientation week (O-week) around the country.
It started this morning with Matt and Alex blindfolded and dropped at a mystery location at 5.30am. They were told to get to the nearest ABC by 6am for their show. The catch? They have to carry an easel and paint set with them all week.
Matt and Alex then got a call from Veronica and Lewis, who got dumped on the beach at Surfers Paradise. Veronica and Lewis were assigned their challenge to head Griffith Uni to complete an obstacle course and they have assigned and must carry and egg and cake-baking set with them all week.

They have set both teams rules, which can change anytime with a challenge but teams must use public transport or lifts from triple j listeners. No money can be used for transport but they can barter with triple j merch.
Teams must stay together at all times and they have carry their assigned cumbersome item at all times, except when they get physical – the challenges, not with each other. But hell who knows.
Toowoomba bound with Jade & Adam from the Gold Coast – the loveliest chauffeurs going around.
