'Work/race against time' nghĩa là phải làm gì đó thật nhanh chóng vì không còn nhiều thời gian (to do something quickly because one has only a small amount of time); chạy đua với thời gian.

Ví dụ
Obama officials work against time to wrap banking rules.

Crews work against time and weather searching for missing man.

Volunteers work against time to save artifacts from Goldenrod Showboat.

The time we are given is limited, and we have to work against time to prepare for the next game against Iran.
