Hats & Headdresses

If you like dressing up, there will also be a competition for the best hat or head dress. The winner of each age category will be decided by media team. We love seeing all the wacky hats and costumes teams bring every year and its time to recognise the effort teams go to, to put a smile on people’s faces.



Hike Necker

Everyone who completes the hike will receive a limited edition hike necker. Ask any of previous year’s participants and they will tell you, collecting them becomes addictive! As per previous years, the colours of this will be kept a surprise!

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
