A massive well done to the two Scout and the Explorer teams at this years Fells Marathon, staged around Carlton in Cleveland, approximately 9 miles south of Middlesbrough on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
The Scout team were in second place at the end of the first day and finished 3rd overall after the second day.
The Explorer and the Scout Lite teams were not placed but did a fantastic effort throughout the event as it was a difficult course. Out of the 9 Explorer teams which started, only 2 were placed and out of the 8 Scout Lite teams which started, only 2 were placed as well.
