Our local Explorer Unit successfully evaded their “Catchers” to finish second in the Escape hiking challenge. Having been dropped off at a mystery location teams had to choose a route over two days, in atrocious weather, where they had to get to specified checkpoints within particular time windows, whilst avoiding Leaders seeking to intercept them.
