20th April, Easter Saturday
Bucket Race Easter Hunt
Let’s get active, shall we? Of course, Easter is nothing without a good Easter Egg Hunt. Although in this hunt you are not hunting for Easter eggs in a conventional way. To be honest: You are not even looking for eggs. The Bucket Race Easter Hunt is a Scavenger Race around London, where teams compete against one another by completing tasks on the list (or BucketList) provided. BucketRaces goal is for participants to discover new places, activities and hidden gems within London while meeting like-minded people and competing in a fun and friendly environment.
You can enter either as an individual and they will allocate you a team on the day, or as your own team. Teams can consist of a maximum of 4 people. Tasks are submitted through the wonderful world of social media, using photos and/or videos as evidence. More specifically they calculate real-time scores using Twitters #Hashtag function. That way teams can use their own mobile phones and they can give you hourly updates on how each team is performing. Twitter is free to download and use. If you don’t already have a twitter account, please ask one of their staff to help you create one before BucketRace begins.
Each tweet must contain the following: Name of the task, points value, #BucketRace, #TeamName, @BucketRace and a photo/video of the task.
Example: Stand in the corner of an elevator facing the wrong way while people enter, 50 pts, @BucketRace, #TeamName #BucketRace.
The first place prize: Tickets for your team to Cadbury World!
