Colin Williams (the Exec Committee chair) is undertaking the Fellsman Challenge and raising funds for the new Scout HQ in the process. If you would like to sponsor Colin please read the details below and follow the link at the bottom of the page.
The Fellsman Challenge is a high level traverse covering more than 60 miles over very hard rugged moorland. The event climbs over 11,000 feet in its path from Ingleton to Threshfield in the Yorkshire Dales.
Most of the route is over privately owned land, the use of which is secured by the organisers for the weekend only. This being the case, the route does not follow well defined footpaths, so the entrants’ navigational skills with a map and compass are tested as well as their physical fitness. Because of this, only fit and experienced walkers or runners should enter.
