Event To Raise Awareness Of Hull's Flood Risk
A fun way to raise awareness of flood risk
An organisation whose remit is to raise awareness of flood risk in the Hull area has announced that the city will once again host to the 'Hulltimate' Challenge.

The Living with Water partnership - made up of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Hull City Council, Yorkshire Water and the Environment Agency - says the urban obstacle race will take place on 13 June 2020.

Based on the area’s relationship with water, the Hulltimate Challenge aims to bring to life ways in which the community of Hull and East Riding can live and thrive with water, by tackling water related obstacles through the streets of Hull.

In October 2018, more than 900 racers took the streets to tackle obstacles such as huge ice baths at The Deep, swimming in Princes Quay Dock and sliding down the giant ‘Hullmageddon’ slide outside Hull Minster.

Lee Pitcher, general manager for Living with Water, said:

"The Hulltimate Challenge engaged more than 1.5 million people last year and was both regionally and nationally ground-breaking in its creative approach to build community awareness around flooding.

"We are thrilled to have the event return to the city, with bigger and better obstacles for everyone.

"Repeating such a successful event, means that not only is there an appetite for events like this but we are better prepared for climate change too."

Living with Water focusses on improving flood resilience and awareness across the region through various projects, including graffiti art installations, education outreach activities in schools, sponsorship of the Big Malarkey festival in June 2019 and attendance at Driffield Show in July.
