Fells Marathon 2020

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, and the suspension of face-to-face Scouting, we have taken the difficult decision not to plan and run the Fells Marathon this year as it is unlikely we could run the event and maintain safe social distancing, even in a reduced capacity.

Fells Marathon 2020

6pm Friday 2nd -

The Fells Marathon is a two-day hiking competition for Scouts and Explorer Scouts. Carrying full kit for the two days, the Scout teams walk around 20 miles while the Explorer Scout teams walk about 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. 

The Wolds Challenge and The Fells Marathon are organised and run by Blacktoft Beacon District Scout Council.
