This weekend, Scouts from Mersey Weaver and other Districts in the County donned their backpacks and took part in “Cheshire Hike”. The event, now in it’s fifty first year is an annual competition open to all Scouts and Guides in Cheshire. The two day expedition is real challenge for all those who take part but with careful planning and good training, the Scouts that took part this weekend are living proof you can succeed! We are looking forward to hearing all the memorable stories from our young people and thank the leaders & parents that took the time to train them as well as the hike organisers and everyone that made the event possible.
Juniors 19km Saturday, 12km Sunday
Intermediate 25km (plus one optional 5km leg) Saturday, 16km Sunday
Senior 29km (plus two optional 5km legs), 19km Sunday
Senior Plus 34km (plus one option 5km leg), 19km Sunday
We would like to thank Richard, Carl, Mark and other members of the newly formed hillwalking and trekking ASU who put considerable effort in at a District Level helping to prepare teams for the event.
Well done to all the District Winners and Zac Hunter & Chloe Leyland from Cestrian ESU who won the Overall Senior+ category.
For any Scouts now considering taking part in the Hike next year stay tuned for details of our own event Mersey Weaver Trek for younger Scouts this Summer!
