September 24 - September 26
The 40th Scout Border Hike at Gradbach
The Border Hike is organised by Gradbach Scout Camp, based on the western edge of the Peak District National Park, nestled in the upper reaches of the Dane Valley on the borders of Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire.
The Border Hike is a challenging, competitive hike for members of the Scout, Explorer and Guiding sections of the movement from all over the British Isles. The next events will take place on the weekend of:
Friday 24th to Sunday 26th September 2021
Run every September, the ‘incident hike’ format is hugely popular with the Scouts and Guides as it adds a number of dimensions to a walk through some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain.
The Border Hike is a weekend event with the actual competition taking place on the Saturday. Distances are 8 to 10 miles for the ‘Border Hike’ event and 12 to 14 miles for the ‘John Bradbury Trophy’. 2010 also saw the introduction of the ‘Johanna Knowles Trophy’ for the highest placed local team from the High Peak District.
