About This Activity

A fun scavenger hunt for teams of two (2) to raise money for an Austin based volunteer organization


The Water Trotter Urban Challenge is a fun and exciting urban scavenger hunt over a distance of approximately three miles that challenges teams to find checkpoints and answer clues which highlight the importance of clean water for developing countries and tests your local knowledge of Austin.

Proceeds will benefit our programs in Panama and Peru.


Each Team will consist of two participants. At least one participant has to be over 18 years in age. Each participant will have to fill out a separate online form / application. The first member of a team can sign up and create a team from this website and the second team member can sign up by joining that team. All participants will be provided with an Event T-Shirt, lunch (from Sholtz Garten) and a 'goodie' bag. Teams are encouraged to participate in costumes.


Teams should choose between the following categories:

- Parent- Child

- All College Students

- All Engineers

- Open

Sample Clues:

1.Take a picture of your team mate standing on the Star of Texas that is right beneath a large dome in Austin.

2. Find the iconic statue with three horses coming out of a fountain within Austin and find three others to make a group of five and take a group picture at this location.

3. Find our volunteers seated in the South Lawn of the Tower and look at their map and guess which two countries EWB-USA Greater Austin currently has projects in. Write the corresponding numbers and names of the two countries on your clue sheet.
