Covid 19 and the Chiltern 20

On behalf of the Chiltern 20 organising Committee, we hope that you and your families are all keeping safe and well and that your Scouting is continuing under the current rules.

The Committee has been meeting (within those rules) with the intention of running the Chiltern 20 event this year. However, we will be continuing to follow guidance issued by the UK Government and the Scout Association to ensure the safety of both young people and leaders involved in the event.

We will provide further updates on the event as and when they become available, so please check in with the website on a regular basis.

The Chiltern 20 is an established event designed to test Scouts on their orienteering skills, endurance and teamwork.

The route will not be disclosed until the day of the event. All teams therefore start with exactly the same chance of winning a trophy.

The event



Working as a team is not an easy skill to learn but Scouting provides excellent opportunities to do so. The Chiltern 20 is a well established event that is a great example of young people working together.



The Chiltern 20 is a fantastic test of endurance. We advise plenty of training before the event as the event is physically challenging. Try to train in the area with your team in the weeks leading up to the event and make sure you are prepared by understanding the rules and having ALL the kit.



Being able to read an OS map and navigate through challenging terrain such as the Chiltern Hills is an excellent skill to be able to acquire. The route is not disclosed until the morning of the event adding an additional challenge to the event.
