#RaceRoundTheWorld

COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation

Now, over 500 Scout groups – many of them based in communities that were already made vulnerable before the virus hit – are struggling to make ends meet.

If they close their doors, thousands of young people will miss out on all the life-changing skills and experiences being a Scout can bring, precisely when they need us most.

That’s why the Scout Association are calling on all Scouts – and the people who care about them – to join in a sponsored #RaceRoundTheWorld, to raise vital funds at this vital moment in our history.

How to take part in #RaceRoundTheWorld

From 29 October onwards, they are asking everyone – including young people and their families, volunteers, and former Scouts – to sign up and join one of four teams.

The four teams are racing each other to see who can be the first to travel the 43,000 miles to get round the world. Everyone who takes part will be following our route at least once, though we’re encouraging everyone to take on as many miles as they can manage!
