Southern 50

9-11 February

The Southern 50 is the ultimate challenge. A 50 mi, 50 km or 30 km challenge hike in teams of 3 to 5. The route is only given to you at the start as a series of checkpoints so you'll need to brush up on your map reading skills. The event is run by Greater Longon North Scouts. There are normally over 400 people who take part along with over 100 supporters and leaders. If you'd like to enter let the leaders know and we'll sort you into teams.
