World Walk Adventure
Nearly 400 young people in Northamptonshire Scouts got the opportunity to use an activity tracker to monitor their steps as they walked from here to Kenya (virtually) – over 8000 miles.
Being active every day helps us to stay healthy, raise our mood and improves concentration at school, work or play. The virtual World-Walk Adventure was created to promote the physical and mental wellbeing of Scouts and Scout Leaders in the Northamptonshire area whilst having fun at the same time. A total of 370 Young People and their Leaders are participated ranging in age from 83 to 10 years of age. The World-Walk Adventure was a total of 8,265 miles long and after 3 months of walking one team covered an astounding 4,375 miles, making their daily average step count of 12,112 steps for each participant within this group.
Northants inaugural Marathon Walk took place last Saturday with fifteen teams taking part in total. The weather was kind to the participants with no rain and moderate temperatures.
The event had two categories the first for the Scout Section which was 13.1 (Hunty) miles and the second for Explorer Scouts, Network and Adult teams which was 26.2 (Hunty) miles. Please note a Hunty mile is slightly more than a regular mile.
I am really pleased with the way all teams grasped the spirit of the event with all teams learning something along the way and still smiling at the finish
The quickest full teams around the course were -
Half Marathon – Scout Section – 4th Northampton in a time of 6hrs 58 minutes although 1st Roade with a Team of 3 did finish in 6hrs dead!!!!!
Full Marathon – Explorers and above – Northampton Explorers A – 11 hours 26 minutes.
I thank all participants for their support and look forward to seeing you all back next year.
