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.
Well done to all the Beavers, Cubs Scouts, Explorers and Network Teams that took part on the 30th September & 1st October 2017
