The annual Costessey Hike, run by 27th Norwich Scout Group for groups from around the area, took place this year on Saturday 28th February.
Teams made up of a mixture Cubs & Scouts from each of the groups taking part enter the competition to complete the 5 mile hike around the village, using their navigational, leadership and team working skills to complete the 6 challenges dotted around the route.
Along with three teams from the 27th there were also two teams from 1st Horsford, three from 16th Norwich in Old Costessey and two teams made up of Cubs & Scouts from the 1st & 2nd Hellesdon groups.
As you can see from the results table below, team 1A from 27th Norwich were the clear winners with 600 points out of a possible 700, with the runners-up being a whole 37 points behind at 563 and 3rd place being just 13 points lower than that with 550.
