The Four Inns

Welcome to the Four Inns website

The Four Inns is regarded by many as the premier Scout organised distance event. It was established in 1957 by members of the 51st Derby (St Lukes) California Rover crew. The event covers approximately 65Km, over some of the roughest moorland in Britain. The Four Inns Takes its name from the Four Inns along its route; The Isle of Skye (site of), the Snake Pass Inn, the Nags Head and the Cat and Fiddle.

The event has evolved over the years and is held in the highest regard by all competitors, be they the 6 hour 38 minute winning team or the 22 hour 30 minute team, who are over the moon having completed such a challenge. All of them comment on the friendliness and support offered.

A loss of life in 1964 was the catalyst for the formation of the Peak District Mountain Rescue organisation. Their support is an integral part of the event.

In response to requests from Scouters, 2015 sees the introduction of the Four Inns 35k Event - specifically for Scouts & Guides over 14 and under 18

Derbyshire Scouts are proud to organise and run this challenging competition and look forward to it celebrating it's centenary. Hope you have a challenging but rewarding day.
