The Chase Walk is a 38.2 mile competitive walk over and around Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, England. The walk is for teams of four to seven people, and takes place annually in March. It is organised by members of the Nationwide Scout Communications Team and friends originally from Sutton Coldfield District Scouts.

The main event is open to members of the Scout and Guide movements aged 14 upwards, entries can also be accepted from some other organisations, see FAQ for details.

An alternative event for Scouts aged 10½ to 14 is also held on the same day, sharing some resources with the main event. This is a 13.8 mile walk during daylight hours.

Near CP9, 2013.

The next event, the 32nd, will be on 14th March 2015

Saturday evening meal this year will be spaghetti bolognese (veg available) or baked potato, and Sunday breakfast will be "take away" to handle the numbers in the available time.

In 2014 we used a real time GPS tracking system to monitor and make available online the locations of all teams. You can view or download your history here
