Also below is a report of three of the Explorers who completed the 20 mile section of the Cotswaold Marathon

 

On the weekend of 3rd & 4th February, Molly, Tash and Dan walked the 20 mile silver route of the marathon for Jamboree sponsorship. They trained for a couple of weekends to practice the route but during the hike, at different stages, joined up with other teams of walkers to support each other finding the 10 checkpoints. They walked through rain, snow, sleet and fog to finish at Bisley checkpoint in the early hours of Sunday morning.  They won the Sealey trophy (fastest mixed team) for their time of 8 hours 12 minutes.  Made the pain from their blisters and aching legs all worth it!
