Endurance60 is a 60 km endurance walk open to Explorer members of the Scout Association. It is a stepping stone to the big endurance challenge to Endurance80.
What route does Endurance60 follow?
Endurance60 follows the Endurance80 route as far as Princes Risborough (Great Missenden > Chesham > Hastoe (near Tring) > Wendover > Coombe Hill > Princes Risborough). From Princes Risborough it heads south towards Prestwood and back to Great Missenden. You can find the route here.
Who takes part in E60?
Endurance60 is open only open to Explorers. No shadows or adults.
Can scouts or younger members take?
No. There are specific events for younger scouting members. See Endurance 40 and Endurance10.
What size are the teams?
As in Endurance80, the team must consist of no fewer than 3 walkers and no more than 5 walkers. If drop-outs during the walk reduce the team size to below three, then the remaining walkers will be teamed up with another team.
What happens when team members drop out?
Walkers will drop out. When they do, there is a procedure that will be followed to get the walker safely back to Great Missenden. The preferable location for a drop out is at a checkpoint. They will then be registered as dropping out and returned to The Misbourne by bus.
So long as the team consists of 3 or more walkers, then it may continue the walk.
If the team drops below 3 walkers, then the team will be held at the checkpoint until it can be combined with another team to form an ad hoc team of 3 or more walkers.
What happens after walkers have returned to The Misbourne?
Once walkers have been registered as returned to The Misbourne, they will be provided with a hot meal (if they want it). They can then either be picked up by a suitable adult, or can bed down in the sleeping hall at The Misbourne.
This event will be run in accordance with the Scout Association's Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR).
