About the Challenge

The Sodbury Challenge is an overnight orienteering exercise held in the Sodbury/Wickwar/Rangeworthy area of South Gloucestershire. The event is open to all Scouts, Explorers, Guides, Network and Leaders.

The Challenge consists of a 5 and an 8 hour exercise with the winning team in each section being the team gaining the most points in the allotted time.
