This ‘Gilwell Walk challenge’ is 110 miles long and the challenge team is made up of 9 Scouts and Explorers aged between 10 and 15 years old and 4 leaders.
 

They will be walking as two teams in a relay along footpaths and the Grand Union Canal, catching up on some sleep and food between the walking slots. 

They are hoping to complete the walk in 3 days. 

For the Scouts taking part, this will be a massive challenge as most have not walked more than 15 miles at a time before.



We are looking for more Corporate & individual sponsors to help us raise £5k for a new Scout HQ, so that 50 more youngsters can join our group! 

Click here to donate!I have been with the group since I was 10 and have seen so many kids go through the group, it would be fantastic to see improved facilities so that this can continue for years to come. I am so proud to be a part of this group and am pleased a group of Scouts and   Leaders feel the same and are going to push themselves through the 110 miles of walking with me!' 

Polly Scurrah, Event Organiser and Scout Leader 

If you are interested in sponsoring the event please get in touch via f

Sponsors will be
invited to a welcome reception
at our hut in St Nicholas Park on the Tuesday evening.
 

"I want to do the sponsored walk because it is a really big challenge and will be a great life experience, although it will be very hard.  I'm also doing it because we really need a new Scout hut and this is a great way to raise money for it."

Tom 13 years, Scout
