Now it’s Hike For Haarlem!

29 January 2019

Leaders David F, David S, Malcolm, Sarah, Sylvia and Tracey are taking part in the 50km hike event in this year’s Southern 50 Challenge.

The Southern 50 Challenge is a tough walk in the Chiltern Hills through the counties of Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, organised by Greater London North Scout County.

The event is a test of good orienteering skills as well as physical ability and teamwork and unlike other well-known hikes the routes are different each year and so local knowledge will not be of help as the route will not be disclosed until the day of the event. All teams therefore start with exactly the same chance of winning a trophy.

Like any other long distance challenge, the effort required to last the full course and receive a finishing certificate is an achievement.

A tough day awaits! You can help to motivate and inspire our leaders by sponsoring them at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/6thfriernbarnetleaders as part of our fundraising efforts for Summer Camp in Haarlem.
