Each team must comprise of between 3 - 5 participants, all of whom must be members of The Scout Association or GirlGuiding UK.
There are THREE routes, 50 miles and 50km open to all and a 30km route for Explorer Scouts only. The event is a test of good orienteering skills as well as physical ability and teamwork.
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.

Southern 50 Challenge - Team Start Times
Please read all event details carefully, there are changes to the rules and kit list make sure that all your team members read them.
The routes in the Chilterns are still quite muddy as you would expect given the rain we have had. A piece of kit that you should consider is gaiters which are great for keeping the mud and water out of your boots.
