The Cotswold Marathon is open to members of the Scout Association or Girlguiding. A team will consist of three people at the start of the hike. If more than three walkers start together, three must be nominated as the team at the start and only these three will qualify for a team prize. If one or more members of a team retire during the event then the remaining members of the team will be allowed to complete the hike with another team but will NOT be eligible for a Team prize. All walkers will be returned to Murray Hall by minibus, whether they finish or retire. Walkers not reaching CP4 in 4 hrs or CP7 in 7 hrs from their start time will be retired.
Can adults take part in the Marathon?
Adults members may walk with teams entering the Bronze and Silver classes or in their own teams for the gold class. They must register and pay the entry fee for class they are entering. Adult members must provide their membership number on the entry form. Adults walking with Scouts or Guides must finish the route with their teams. Each adult entrant must have a valid DBS (previously known as CRB) and membership number.
Can I invite someone to take part in the Marathon?
