It’s back! – The Hulltimate Challenge 2020 will return.

Project Page Detail:

As with everything important to us, we continue to reflect on our plans, consult with our stakeholders and refine how we do things to achieve the greatest possible impact and benefits to the communities we serve, the Hulltimate is no exception!

Taking our thinking back to the core of our mission with this event, to raise awareness and better prepare our communities for the impact of flooding, reducing its impact whilst increasing community resilience, we have made some changes which we believe help us to better achieve this mission.

With most of the planet engaged with climate change, it is felt that a focussed event educating children as our future ambassadors of the Living with Water programme around the region’s vulnerability with water, will help build resilience in the region for years to come.

Reflecting on these environmental constraints, this will now be closed event for schools only and therefore the public element of the race will no longer take place. This allows us to focus on providing two full action-packed days of school’s races, engagement and education in a larger and more appropriate venue. This will allow us to appeal to more schools from across the Hull & Haltemprice catchment, to bring more pupils in for longer and more direct engagement.

Education is central to the Living with Water strategy with a range of varied projects in delivery and scheduled in to better educate communities and stakeholders, this change to the Hulltimate 2020 will allow us to drive the message home in a fun and interactive way, reaching a far greater audience of children in a safer and more flexible space, children who will not only be our next generation of decision makers, but will also take this new learning home immediately, making families and homes safer today!
