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 mile walk during daylight hours.
The next event, the 32nd, will be on 14th March 2015
Entries are now being finalised, start times are published for Main Walk.
All teams should now have paid, when your fees are received your walker handbooks will be sent out, and you will have access on the website to complete the details of your team and if you wish add a team profile and photograph.
We are aware that the grid ref of Checkpoint 2 (and 9 and B) at Aspen Car Park is not given consistently in all documents. The correct ref is SJ 982 158.
In 2015 we again have use of the tracking devices so live updates on team locations will be available online. Should your team not want to be tracked please advise us at book in.
