On the 29th of February the Cambridge University Scout and Guide Club held the Forward Hike 2020. Our troop entered 5 teams to start around 8 in the morning. My patrol started at base B which was half way round the course, so we’d finish there as well. We started walking clockwise around the route through some extremely muddy paths which soaked our feet, to point A which was a puzzle station. The other bases included a quiz, an obstacle course and first aid. The whole hike took us 6½ hours for a 7 hour time limit but we managed to not get lost, which is a first for my patrol! Then, at HQ, we got doughnuts and hotdogs.
Me and my patrol really enjoyed this hike because we did well and the weather was nice.
