Appeal - Let There Be Light Again - Please Help

The young people of Crawley have lost the use of a magical outdoor place after the theft of the main electrical cable in to the local Scout campsite in recent weeks. At some point during the last week of September metal thieves disconnected and stole 150m of high voltage copper cable from the Pease Pottage location, disabling the security measures that were in place. Please click here for more information and donate to help us get this amazing facility back into operation as quickly as possible.

There are three categories in the Charlton Chase, Premier, Standard and Novice, each requiring a greater level of fitness, navigational skill and team work ability to complete the challenge successfully.

Premier Team Event     

The Premier Team event requires teams to walk at a speed of at least 5 kilometres an hour, be competent navigators and problems solvers to meet the challenges en route all under 8 hours. They must visit all the tasks and main gateways during the event. Teams are awarded points for getting to their checkpoints and for completing the tasks en route. The team with the highest score is declared the winner.

Standard Team Event 

The Standard Team event offer teams a bit more choice on the points they visit but will still require teams to walk at speeds of at least 4 kilometres an hour whilst navigating accurately and working together as a team to complete the challenge in under 8 hours. Teams are awarded points for getting to their checkpoints and for completing the tasks en route. The team with the highest score is declared the winner.

Novice Team Event    

The Novice Team event offers new teams the chance to experience the thrills and excitement of the Charlton Chase whilst under the supervision and guidance of a competent adult, as the team is accompanied the age range for this group is 14 to 18. Novice teams are given freedom of choice as to the tasks they choose to visit although main gateways must be visited. The Novice event is not a competition and is meant as an introduction to the Standard or Premier event.
