Summer Scout Fest 2020: Challenge 2! Step-Up

Challenge 2:

Are you ready to take on the second challenge of our Merseyside Summer Scout Fest 2020? (#MSSF2020) - Merseyside Scout Step Up!

Over the next two weeks, we challenge you to get your walking shoes on and join in with #MerseysideStepUp.

Pick a challenge from the list below or decide on one of your own. You can choose to do your challenge in one day, over several days, or over the whole two weeks.

Think about where you will complete your challenge – up and down your stairs at home, around the garden, your local park, other places to walk local to you. Who will you complete your challenge with – on your own, with your family or with your four legged friend.

Make sure you dress suitably for wherever you choose to walk and the weather, so think about if you’ll need sun cream, sun hat, a waterproof or hike boots. And no good walk would be complete without plenty of supplies – so don’t forget your drinks, sandwiches and energy bars!

On average each step we take is 20cm, which means for every 5 steps you take you walk a meter.

  • 18 and overs

Our prize winners won’t necessarily be picked because they walked the furthest, it’s all about how you complete the challenge. So when you have finished your personal step up challenge, get in touch via any of our social media platforms using the hashtag #MerseysideStepUp and tell us what challenge you chose, a bit about where and how you did it and share a picture of you completing it.

So go on, put your best foot forward and step, two, three, four!
