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.

5th Beverley at Start

Wolds Challenge Hike

The event is a test of navigation, route finding and teamwork, as well as a walking challenge. This is also a great training event for the Fells Marathon. Different routes are set for each age group. The Scouts will walk approximately 12 miles whereas the Explorers will walk 17 miles.

This event was originally run by Humberside Scout Communications Team and was called the Humber Bridge Challenge.

After a short break the event was revived by Pocklington District Scouts as the Wolds Challenge and over recent years has been run by the Fells Marathon Committee as a training / sister event to the popular FELLS MARATHON.

It is now run in different locations around East Yorkshire.

These pages are intended to give you an understanding of the event and help groups taking part find ll of the information they need to be able to participate in the Wolds Challenge Hike

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