109th Countesthorpe and Leire & Dunton Scouts teamed up again this year to attend Border Hike. They camped together, Countesthorpe entering three teams, Leire & Dunton entering one. Border Hike is an annual incident hike competition based at Gradbach Scout Campsite in the Peak District – teams of Scouts are challenged to complete the hike totally unaided by Leaders, completing tasks at bases along the route.
This year, Countesthorpe’s teams were placed a fantastic fourth, seventh and twelfth, while Leire & Dunton were placed fifth. Excellent results considering they were up against teams from the local area who were far more accustomed to hiking in the hilly terrain.
Well done to all Scouts who took part!
