Cub Hike Challenge

Humberside County Cubs challenge your cub pack to take part in our Hiking Competition.

Come and show off your navigation and team working skills on our County Cub Hiking Challenge. During the day you will take part in a walk whilst undertaking a number of challenging bases which will involve physical, mental and practical challenges.

During the day, the aim will be for all cubs to accomplish the requirements of the Navigator Stage 3 badge, which will be given to all young people at the end of the event.


As this is a hiking competition, the start times will be staggered and you will be notified of your arrival time after the closing date (which will be 09:00, 10:00 or 11:00)


Parking details are to be arranged nearer to the event.


Cubs will need to have the following to take part:

  • Full uniform to be worn
  • Suitable outerwear, waterproofs, coat (if it rains, the event will still take place!)
  • Sensible outdoor footwear
  • A pack-up for lunch will also be needed. There will be drinks at Raywell available throughout the day.
  • 1 leader that is willing to take part with them
  • 1 leader to help man bases either on site or along the route


All equipment and instructions for bases will be provided – however, we need leaders (and / or young leaders) to help run these in order for the event to be a success. Additional volunteers are welcome from groups.


We would recommend that all packs practice their map reading skills as this will assist you on the event.


All entries along with the entry fee for the team (£10) should be sent to:

Stephanie Palmer, 11 Furlong Road, Stamford Bridge, York, YO41 1PX
