2017 – what is Get 2 Go?

Contact: Jenni Blyleven: blyleven@maxnet.co.nz

Training will start in Term 2:

Now in its 12th year, the Get2Go Challenge comprises a series of fun and exciting regional events, culminating in a Grand Final for qualifying participants. It is like the Amazing Race, Treasure Island and Survivor, mixed together with adventure sports including rock climbing, orienteering, kayaking, mountain biking and a little bit of problem solving.

Get2Go is organised by Hillary Outdoors and supported by sports clubs and organisations right across New Zealand and has been designed to encourage a wider participation in outdoor pursuit activities. There are 12 events in the series held in regions around the country spanning as far north as Whangarei and right down to Dunedin. These take the form of one day challenges that are held in Term 3 each year.

In the regional one day events, teams need to undertake four 60 minute long challenges and attempt each in the allotted time. To maximise their score in each task teams will be required to work together, using important team skills such as communication, problem solving, planning and decision making. There is a limited capacity of 24 teams at each regional challenge, with teams taken on a first in first served basis.

The 5-day long national Get2Go Challenge Final is held on Great Barrier Island in December each year for teams qualifying from the  regional event series .

Who is the Get2Go for?

The Get2Go Challenge is open to ALL year 9 and 10 students. You DON’T need any special outdoors experience, but you DO need to be ready to give exciting new stuff a go! You can be as social or as competitive as you like.
