About the #RaceRoundTheWorld

Race Round the World

During November and December we joined in with The Scouts Race Round The World: an epic, sponsored challenge, to raise money for 500+ Scout Groups hit hardest by COVID-19. Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, explains more.

The Group will be given 20% of the funds we raised through our teams, but we’re not going to be keeping it. York Mosque Scouts started up just before the first lock-down started, as a result getting on their feet has been difficult. For this reason we’ll be supporting this Group in our own District.

There were four national teams, one for each section (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts), racing each other to see who would be the first to travel the 43,000 miles to get round the world.

Final Update: 11th December 2020:
