Over 700 Cubs (boys and girls aged 8 to 10) Scouts (boys and girls aged 10 to 14), Explorers (boys and girls aged 14 to 17) and adult volunteers aged 18 plus took to the Chilterns for Buckinghamshire Scouts’ Endurance events. The Cubs hiked 10k, and the Scouts 40k. Some of the Explorers hiked 60k, whilst some took on the 80k challenge, along with the adults. This year, the event was supported by The Ridgeway National Trail. The trail is celebrating its 50th anniversary. They arranged for maps of the Ridgeway Trail to be available to all entrants in the three longer events and map books for the winning teams.
