CHALLENGING SCOUTS IN WILD AND REMOTE PLACES

The Event

Two events will take place, one for the Scout section and one for the Explorer section as follows :-

  • Scout section entry - open to all Scouts between the age of 10 and 14
  • Explorer section entry - open to all Scouts over 14 and up to 18

The Scout section route is approx 19km walking on the Saturday and 12km on the Sunday. The route concentrates on navigating over the moorland and some hills with a mixture of fields and lowland valleys, farmland and woods, i.e. the walking is not difficult, but the navigation will be the key to success

The Explorer route is approx 27km on the Saturday and 16km on the Sunday. Whilst the route follows a similar path to the Scout section, there is an extra section which involves more moorland and hills to navigate. Again navigation is the key to a bed for the night.

The Fells is aimed at everyone completing the course and is set as such. The skill is in route finding and being able to read the map.
