The Finish

Having packed up base, you will soon be on your way to the finish! Remember to take all your belongings and rubbish with you.

When you arrive, a team of friendly marshalls will be available to guide you to the check in desk and present you with your certificate.

Having changed into your uniform shirt and sandals, you can take a rest by giving your rucksack to the hike staff to be looked after.

Chill with your new friends and tuck in to some tasty food while watching a film! When all the teams have arrived, you’ll be ushered into the presentation ceremony. Your parents and leaders will be eagerly waiting to cheer you on. Its fair yo say, they will be incredibly proud of you!

There will of course be a presentation of trophies with the opportunity to win:

  • Your District Trophy for your age category
  • The County Trophy for your age category
  • Hats & Headdress competition
  • The Brian Kershaw award

It’s important to remember whether you receive a trophy or not; everyone who
takes part in the hike should be proud! When it’s all over, it’ll be time to head home
for a shower and some sleep!

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.'
