On the 12th May 2018 two of our Beavers set out to walk from Staines to Henley, a gruelling 50km.
It was a grey and rainy day but Rafal Brymer (Head of the Bird Division) and Marcin Stolarek (Bird team) marched through it. They completed the 50k walk in 9 hours and 55 minutes beating their target time of 10 hours by 5 minutes.
The trek took them through Windsor and Cookham before arriving in Henley and hugs the river Thames for much of the way. Although it’s quite a flat route it does include a couple of hills and the challenge to walk a mammoth 50kms (31 miles) can never be underestimated.
In total our busy Beavers walked 53.13 km, an average of 5.3 kms an hour. This added up to a massive 58084 steps for Rafal and 78000 for Marcin.
They raised £250 for the British Heart Foundation and we are very proud of them.
