“Cheshire Hike is one of the most historic and renowned events in our calendar.

“It sees Scouts, Explorers, Guides and Rangers hiking through the Cheshire countryside, navigating their way. It requires preparation, organisation, teamwork, resilience and personal determination to get to the end.

“This is an event that truly delivers #SkillsForLife and every participant should be very proud to say they have taken part. For some it’s the pride in saying they have taken part in multiple Cheshire Hikes!

“To the Leaders who support their young people with training and encouragement, thank you, because without you, it would be impossible to give this many young people a challenge or adventure of this magnitude.

“To the volunteers who help us organise and run the hike, you are all amazing, because without you, Cheshire Hike simply would not happen.

“To all participants, good luck, enjoy the weekend and be proud because you are doing something very special.”
