Scouts took to the hills last weekend to navigate their way through a demanding Chilterns trek.

The Columbus-Bellahoj Explorers from Barking and Dagenham finished the gruelling 30k challenge in just over nine hours.

“It was an amazing event,” said Explorer Michael Tucker, 14.

“I never realised that I could walk that far. I love doing this kind of Scouting event as it pushes me to my limits.”
