Chiltern 20 | 13th October 2018
The Chiltern 20 is an established event designed to test scouts on their orienteering skills, endurance 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.
Working as a team is not an easy skill to learn but scouting provides excellent opportunities to do so. The Chiltern 20 is a well established event that is a great example of young people working together.
The Chiltern 20 is a fantastic test of endurance. We advise plenty of training before the event as the event is physically challenging. Try to train in the area with your team in the weeks leading up to the event and make sure you are prepared by understanding the rules and having ALL the kit.
Being able to read an OS map and navigate through challenging terrain such as the Chiltern Hills is an excellent skill to be able to acquire. The route is not disclosed until the morning of the event adding an additional challenge to the event.
