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 33rd, will be on 19th March 2016
Entries for 2016 are now open.
Once again the scout walk has proved very popular, and all 40 places have been reserved already. Please email us to be placed on the waiting list.
If you have reserved places, please note that unless you make payment by end of December places may be forfeit and offered to teams on the waiting list, giving them reasonable notice for training etc. This gives five weeks to get the money collected and in to us.
For this year, payment still needs to be made by cheque sent by post. We are moving our bank account to one where we will be able to accept online banking payments from next year.
If you are trying to get a team together, why not download the poster for 2016 from here, then print and display it.
