The Start

Please arrive ready for the start time you are given. Ensure you have all of the members of your team as well as all equipment suggested on the kit list.


Essential kit such as waterproofs, first aid kit, lunch and drinks should be packed in a daypack. All other kit should be packed in a separate rucksack; clearly marked with your team number. This will be transported to the Basecamp ready for you on arrival.

Pathfinder Plus and Explorers

All of your kit should be packed into the rucksacks being carried by the team. Your team will register, have your packs weighed, and then asked if you have all the items required. Once completed, you will receive your map! You will need to plot the route for the day before a marshall will confirm you are ready.

Parents will be able to stay and wait to wave you off on the hike, but will need to wait outside the building. We will be selling fresh coffee and bacon sandwiches while they wait.

Kit List

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.'
