WHAT IS AN ESKIMO RUN?

The Eskimo Run is a Webelos Scout competitive activity similar to the Klondike Derby for Boy Scouts. It is

designed to test the Scouts' proficiency in the Webelos skills and provide a day of fun and excitement for them.

They will be asked to answer questions and demonstrate their skills. All materials are provided, except the sled

which each patrol (formerly called dens) is required to bring with it. The time available on the course is the same for

all teams, starting and ending at the same time. Time should not be wasted so that all stations can be visited.

Otherwise, time is not a factor in the competition. Individual stations are not timed as a scoring factor. Stations

usually close for new arrivals at 2:30 PM. Every effort is made to conclude the event by 4:00 PM. If you have any
