Congratulations to this years Hutt Urban Adventurers!

Teams cycled, scooted, walked & ran around Lower Hutt completing challenges & finding eggs.  Challenges included rock climbing, egg painting, construction of wooden bunnies & more.  It was a chilly day, so very impressed with everyone coming out despite the weather!  We wish everyone a very happy Easter, and look forward to seeing you in 2020.

 What is the Hutt Urban Adventure? 

 In 2019, teams could choose from one of two great options:


Family Explorer Teams

A fun family event offering the opportunity to get Easter egg hunting done early!

What do you do?

2019 04 13 MTP 49

City-wide scavenger hunt done in teams of 2-7 people over 2.5 hours. Using a map and clue sheet teams move around Lower Hutt finding 'Easter egg' checkpoints and completing challenges. Challenges are designed to suit children aged 3-12 with their parents.

Challenge by choice. You choose how many of the more than 50 checkpoints to visit, and how you move in between them.  Stop for coffee and a snack, or keep moving for the whole 2.5hours of the event - it's up to you.  You can use any 'people-powered' mode of transport you like - prams, scooters, bikes, running or walking.  Together your team can scoot, skate, skip or sprint - so long as you stay together. Coffee stops allowed!

Families with young children might find they have the best day if little ones with shorter legs scoot, balance-bike or pedal while older team members walk or run.

You'll fill in a code-sheet as you go, and at the finish will hand that in.  Prizes will be 'lucky-dip' from these sheets - this event is non competitive and is all about taking part.  No matter if you're the fastest or the slowest team or if you finish 5 checkpoints or 25 - if you finish & are at prizegiving you'll be in to win!

There will be spot prizes, prizes for the best team name and the best team outfit.

Price: $5 per person, children $5 and under participate for FREE           Event length: 2.5 hours
