It was a chance discussion a year ago about having a cross country run that morphed into a Mud Run open to all sections and members of Girlguiding UK. On a superb, sunny morning over 200 young people assembled at Danemead Campsite for the first Mud Run.
Full support from the growing team of campsite crew who had their chance to show off their skills with many weekends of preparation paying off in what was generally acknowledged to be a superbly organised event.
Mud was in plentiful supply with the Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts completing one lap and the Scouts, Explorers and Guides completing three laps and a number of obstacles around the course, some more muddy than others !
The Axis Foundation donated £3,000 to Danemead Scout Camp Site to help convert an existing external toilet into a purpose-design disabled toilet and washroom.
