Over 100 Scouts & Leaders in 18 teams walked through the countryside of Essex for a chance to challenge themselves against Scout patrols from across Essex.

With a mixture of teams from right across the county, teams competed for the Kitson Cup where they were assisted in route planning and navigation by adult volunteers, or for the Columbus Trophy if they completed the course unassisted. The route started in the morning on Saturday at Silver End and finished at Prances campsite by late afternoon.

Teams taking part included Kelvedon & Feering, 1st Wivenhoe, Orsett & Bulphan Cooper, Orsett & Bulphan Whitmore, 3rd Rayleigh, 1st Wickford, 4th Epping, 6th Rochford, 1st Ramsden & Downham, 2nd Langham, 1st Stanway and 5th Saffron Walden.
