It's not just about adventure for young people, our leaders are taking on challenges of their own, both raising money for the group and for another local cause. We'd be very grateful for any support you can give to help us raise as much money as possible

Stockton River Rat Race - Saturday 29th August 2015
Andrew Turnbull, Carl Hickman, Craig Johnson, Gemma Younghusband, Kate Bowdon, Jonathan Chicken and Stephen Harrison are all taking on the Stockton River Rat Race, raising money for St Benedict's Hospice in Sunderland. The River Rat Race is a 10 kilometre run, including a series of obstacles which takes us in and out of the River Tees, such as walking the plank from the replica of Captain Cook's boat and an army style assault course along the way. Visit to see the full course map.

Please visit our Team i.Scout sponsor page and pick a leader to sponsor as well as finding out why St Benedict's Hospice is important to us all.

The Great North Run - Sunday 13th September 2015
Carl Hickman, Craig Johnson and Nicola Fell are running the Great North Run this September to raise money for the group. The Great North Run is the world's most prestigious half marathon event and Carl, Craig and Nicola will be joining around 50,000 to run the famous route over the Tyne Bridge and along to the coast at South Shields.
