In the October holidays Challenge 2000 and some young people saw the return of the Amazing Race, held around the Wellington CBD! Participants started out at the Botanical Gardens and worked their way down to Waitangi Park via Parliament, Frank Kitts Park, the Waterfront, Civic Square and Te Papa.
Along the way they had to complete a variety of challenges and activities.
It was an incredible day with participants managing to complete the entire race on foot!!
This is what some of the young people had to say:
“B”, 15, (Lower Hutt) – “Enjoyed getting around Wellington because I don’t live in the area”; “L”, 15, (Porirua) – “I liked the fact that it wasn’t just in one place (eg Botanical Gardens and Wellington CBD)”; “H”, 14, (Naenae) – “I enjoyed meeting new people and the food”
