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.

The Fells Marathon Age Categories

We all want the event to be a fair competition, so there are different events to support varying ages.

The Fells Marathon Age Categories

To make the event a fair as possible and enable young people to compete against other similar agesd teams, the event has been broken down into separate age categories.

The event is split into 4 age categories as shown below:

Fells Lite
Explorer Scouts
Minimum Age*
Maximum Age**
Under 14½ 
Under 18
Under 25

*Participants must be below the minimum& age on the date of the event.

**Participants must be below the maximum at the start of the event. Where a birthday takes place during an event, they are considered below the age for the duration of the event (POR 4.7l refers)

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