Hippo Hunt 2015

Hippo Hunt Logo

In celebration of the 100 years of the Hippo, Bike Hutto is holding its first ever HIPPO HUNT on November 14, 2015! Hippo Hunt is a Hippo Scavenger Hunt on bicycles. Teams of 4-6 will bike to various hippos throughout central Hutto based on clues and a map. At each hippo location they get a clue that takes them on to the next hippo. Each team has a slightly different “route”. The event will start at 9am at Creekside Park located at 305 Orchard Way in Hutto, Texas. Check-In opens at 8am to allow teams time to receive their event packet materials, etc. The first team that completes the scavenger hunt and makes their way back to Creekside Park wins.

It is $15 a person with a maximum of $60 per team. Each participant receives an event T-Shirt and Swag Bag. All proceeds from the event will go to Hutto Has Heart. Please make payment by clicking on the Payment Link below. Payments can be made individually or one person can pay for their entire team.

Registration and Payment Must Be Made By November 1st

Safety: Helmets are required to participate. All road and trail rules must be obeyed at all times. The only way to cross Hwy 79 is via the Cottonwood Creek Trail Underpass (shown on the map provided at check-in). Any crossing of Hwy 79 not via the underpass will result in an immediate disqualification.

Teams are between 4 and 6 persons. If you do not have a team, we will be happy to pair you up with a team. Each team member is to fill out their own registration form (or have a parent fill it out for them). A team member is any individual riding their own bike on the team. Small children in carriers do not count as a team member and there will be no fee for that child.

Once registration and payment is received, an email will be sent to you with more information concerning the event. Any immediate questions can be sent to bikehutto@gmail.com.
