Instagram Scavenger Hunt and More!

In the lead up to IB this year we have a few social media competitions and initiatives to help build excitement for this years event. Importantly, don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat to keep up with all the latest news, including some juicy course hints 😉

Instagram Scavenger Hunt (Every Monday from Bushweek)

Each week we will post on our Instagram account the grid reference for a landmark in and around the city. The aim is for your college to take one of its training runs to that location, take a photo with the landmark in the background with as many people as you can fit in the photo. Upload it to Insta with the #BupaIB16 and it will appear on a feed on the homepage of the website (set profile to public). The college to win the most landmarks (most number of people in the most number of photos) will win a prize after IB. Prize currently includes Zambreros for the entire team and we’re waiting to hear back from some other suppliers before confirming the other prizes. 


  • Grid reference posted on Monday , upload Pic by the following Sunday.
  • Take a photo with the landmark in the background and as many people as possible in the foreground (we’ll be counting the number of people so they need to be clearly visible)
  • Use #[Your College], #BupaIB16 when uploading your pics to Instagram
  • We’ll announce each weeks winner on the Monday.

Guess that Location (Every Saturday)

Each week we will post a photo on Instagram of a landmark on previous and possible IB courses. Comment your guess as to the name and location of the landmark.

IB Legends

Every week for 8 weeks leading up to IB this year we will feature one “Legend” ex-resident from each college who has a special story to tell about Inward Bound on Instagram.  If you have any suggestions for your college’s IB legend, please use the contact form below the Instagram Feed.
