Forward CUSAGC

Cambridge District Scout Archive

Forward is Cambridge University Scout and Guide Club annual incident hike for Scouts and Guides.  It takes the form of a 10 mile hike with five checkpoints spaced around the route where challenges allow teams to earn points.  Two trophies are available to be won; one for Scout Association teams and one for Girl Guiding UK teams.

A full list of winners to 1982 exists but it is at odds with the published records on the CUSAGC web page and on the shield and is not reproduced here. 

The CUSAGC Marathon event is a matching event for Explorers and Adult teams.  CUSAGC arranged night hikes and incident hikes prior to this event for Venture Scout Units in the 1970’s.
