Malvern Challenge

This is an annual weekend event run for scouts and guides, based on a farm near Cheltenham, in some fabulous rolling countryside. It has been going for 28 years apparently, and this was the first time that I am aware that 4th B’field has attended. Next year will be the last one, as the farm has been sold. A shame. Maybe it will resurrect somewhere else, we’ll wait and see.

 

There were groups there who had been coming every year for years. I am not surprised – the entire weekend, from our arrival on Friday evening right through to our departure on Sunday afternoon, was simply fantastic. Just a shame we hadn’t been before…

 

The Malvern Challenge itself is an 8 mile hike, with 8 separate checkpoints, where teams score points on various challenges including mapreading, knot making, abseiling, ‘mini olympics’, pedal kart racing, rifle shooting amongst others. Some 2000 scouts and guides competed, with teams from all round the country taking part.
