It’s back! – The Hulltimate Challenge 2020 will return, as the UK’s 1stand only city-centre Urban Obstacle Course, this water oriented, adrenaline packed challenge will be taking over the city again in June 2020… click here for more details

Project Page Detail:

The Hulltimate Challenge was first conceived in 2018 and proved to be a massive success. This water-themed, adrenaline-packed 10k urban assault course weaves throughout Hull city centre, attractions, shopping malls and even takes a spash in Princes Quay!

The event bridges the gap between a fun and engaging community activity and the city’s much forgotten water resources. Hull is a city built upon water, benefitting from its water resources and location to water systems whilst also facing challenges from its water through flooding risk.

By bringing communities together to enjoy, appreciate and better understand the city’s water we hope to build both personal and city-wide water resilience, starting with an appreciation of what water has to offer us geographically, economically, leisurely and personally…

Tickets for this event are significantly cheaper than similar assault and obstacle course races, with free tickets being allocated to select community groups and organisations from across the Humber region coming together to offer advice, guidance, activities and information to participants and spectators alike… one thing’s for sure, the Hulltimate 2020 is going to be even bigger and better so don’t miss out… tickets go on sale [insert date] and you can grab yours from [insert link]

How can I get involved?

You can get involved in lots of ways… you can come along to see what our partners have to offer, grab a bite of lunch and generally watch the awesome spectacle on the day, or better still… GET INVOLVED! Join us in completing the obstacle course with a friend, family, colleagues or even in competition against another group, there will be over 30+ obstacles for ranging abilities as well as a 5K and optional 10k route… with volunteers and race staff along the route, hot showers and changing facilities on-site what reason do you have for not joining in?

Tickets go on sale Summer 2019, to register your interest on early bird booking slots click here
