Monopoly Run 2019

Date: 23rd November 2019 Location: London Sections: Explorer Scouts, Scout Network, Adult Volunteer

What exactly does the event entail?

It is a life-sized version of the popular game taking place in London. Visit all the places on our Monopoly board, taking pictures around London and answering questions to gain Monopoly money to win the game. Pick your team, choose a costume, find your mascot and get ready for the challenge! Don’t forget to share your exploits on Facebook and on Instagram using #hertsscoutsmonopoly.

Who can enter?

The challenge is open to all Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members.


How much will it cost? 

It costs £10 per person for admission, which includes an event scarf, event badge, team packs and refreshments at the end of the challenge.

In addition each participant will need to purchase a London Travelcard. The Travelcard allows unrestricted access to London. You can use them on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services within London.

Where do I start and what time?

Registration is between 8.30am-09:30am at City Temple Church and Conference Centre (Holborn Viaduct, Holborn, London EC1A 2DE (near City Thameslink or Farringdon Station)). There is no parking and you’ll be expected to get to the start using public transport. Please arrive at the start as a team.

You have six hours to complete the challenge and return to the City Temple Church and Conference Centre. By 4pm everyone needs to be back and we will provide refreshments, music and the important results! We aim to finish by 5pm.
