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.

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.
