Team Events


Overview


Have fun with your friends, family or club by organising a car, bike, boat, public transport rally. Think of an amazing race where each team or person must complete challenges prior to going to the next point. Not only will they have fun but they will experience new scenery and learn about new things. You may even create your own trek so that you can raise funds for your club or charity.

Outdoor education is a great way of teaching students about different environments and what better way than to organise a team event. Students may participate in a variety of adventures such as hiking, climbing, canoeing, ropes courses and group games. The activities may take place in a local schoolyard, park or forest. You can decide to use an existing trek or create one yourself. You will have access to track every student's progress as well as contacting them through the messaging app.


What you need to know 


Events are fun - so tell your competitors about your plans. Ask them to arrive at the starting point one hour before its time to begin. Competitors can not begin before the start time that you determine but they may begin after that time. Their scores will be based upon the correctness of their answers and the bonus points that they accumulate. 

Make sure that there are at least two people per team - if driving is required then a navigator will need have a keen eye on navigation and finding items. Trekker will score each team on their ability to find and complete tasks and, at the end of your rally, they will have a record of their journey including where they traveled, their photographs, distance and how they scored.

How to run a team event


Firstly, select a trek that will be the basis of your rally. If no trek is suitable then design your own. Create an event with a name, date and time. You can then invite the members through inbuilt social networking. Once your competitors have accepted your invitation then you will be good to go. Your teams must being no earlier than your start time and must be at the start location to begin. Each team will be scored on their individual successes and the their total time to complete the event. Stay in touch with your teams with Trekker messaging - there should be good communication throughout the rally.

Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.
