Fells Marathon – Explorer Winners

Congratulations to our two Explorer teams on their success in the Fells Marathon. Finishing in 1st Place were Hessle 1 with a time of 10hrs 01min and in 2nd Place were Hessle 2 with a time of 15hrs 02mins out of the 12 teams taking part. The Fells Marathon is a two-day hiking competition for Scouts and Explorer Scouts. Carrying full kit for the two days, the Explorer teams walk around 26 miles. Overnight the teams cater for themselves on a remote site monitored by event staff – no leaders or team supporters are permitted there. It is a test of navigation, camping skills and endurance. What an achievement!
