     2018 Event Now Open for Entries     
        Sat 24th & Sun 25th November        

Thanks to everyone who contributed to last year's record-breaking participation on the event's 30th anniversary. We are now taking entries for this year's competition.

The Grimsdyke Hikes are fun and challenging tests of orienteering, navigation and endurance in the beautiful Chiltern Hills around the ancient and mysterious earthworks of Grim’s Dyke.

Open to Scouts, Guides and Explorers, there are one or two-day events depending on the age of the participants and the level of competition.

Test your map and compass skills, find the hidden check points, race against the clock... the hikes are as competitive as you choose, but always great fun. 

The website explains everything but you can download most of what you need here or from the downloads page. There's also a flyer you can download to use with your troop, parents, carers and helpers.
