On Saturday 5 February 2016, three scout leaders from 23rd Wembley Sahabah Scouts took part in the exhausting hiking challenge, Endurance80: a 24 hour hike covering 50 miles (80 km) cross country starting and ending at Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.
Starting out at Great Missenden, our team of three — the Hooded Howlers — followed the route east to Chesham, then northwest to Wendover, southwest to Princes Risborough and Stokenchurch, before returning to Great Missenden. The weather was chilly, with light snow on the ground in some places — muddy underfoot elsewhere.
Unfortunately due to injuries within our team we had to drop out early, after completing 25 miles in 13 hours. However we still managed to raise funds for our scouting group by taking part. Furthermore, it was great training for our upcoming Tough Mudder challenge.
