Scouts - Are you up for the Chiltern 20 Challenge Hike?

Scouts - Are you up for the Chiltern 20 Challenge Hike?

Plans for this year’s 35th anniversary Chiltern 20 Challenge Hike taking place on Saturday 15th October 2016 are well under way and we are looking forward to welcoming another record number of teams, especially teams from across GLSW.

The Chiltern 20 Challenge Hike is open to all members of The Scout Association who are in the Scout Troop Section born after 15th April 2002. The Challenge is a test of physical ability as well as good orienteering. Team composition is very flexible, and can comprise three, four or five Scouts.

We have introduced two levels to this year’s Challenge: a Junior event where the Scouts aged under 12 will navigate around a shorter route of up to 15km supported by up to two adults, and a Senior event where the Scouts will navigate around a longer route of up to 25km. There are two entry levels in the Senior event: “A” – no adult walking with team, “B” – maximum of two adults accompanying the team.

The online entry database opens on 1st July 2016 and can be found on www.scouts-gln-southern50.org.uk where there is a load more info about the event. The same website will also hopefully inspire your older Scouts aged over thirteen and a half to take part in next year’s famous Southern 50 Challenge Hike on 11th February 2017. This provides a perfect opportunity for them to take part in a linked activity before they move up to Explorer Scouting.

Email secretary@scouts-gln-southern50.org.uk if you need any help.
