The posts in the Amazing Race are the representatives of the 6 division in ALSA LC UGM. Each post gives out a different task respective to the division they represent. After Grha Sabha Pramana, the groups raced to the post placed near Gramedia and from there, they go to the most popular landmark in Yogyakarta, Tugu Yogyakarta, then they’re head out to Joglo at the end of Malioboro Street. The groups then head out to Malioboro street and find the next post located at the Yogyakarta Regional Representative of the People. The next post was nearby, specifically the Gedung Agung building located at Malioboro street as well. Gedung Agung was the second last post in the Amazing Race in which the last post or the finish line of the Amazing Race is Alun Alun.
