Monopoly Run 2020

Monopoly Run 2020 is Postponed

Due to the nature and timing of the event, in the interests of public health a decision has been taken to postpone the 2020 Monopoly Run until the Autumn.

Bookings will remain open and existing team bookings will be be carried forward to the new date. The organising team will be contacting all teams with more information as soon as possible.


Let Yourself Go!


Durham Scout County's Monopoly Run is back for 2020 (New date to be announced)

Roam across Tyneside and Wearside on buses, trains, the Metro and ferries, using your Day Rover pass (included in your fee) and our special Tyne and Wear Monopoly board to give you clues on where to go and what to do to earn 'cash'. Take photos at the right locations, make videos, take a 'Chance' with our random challenges, help bewildered passers-by with our 'Community Chest Challenge' and use social media and our special Monopoly Run App to let us know what you're doing - and to track all the action.

As well as Durham Scout County Explorer Scouts / Scout Network members, the event is also open to Units/Networks from the North East Region (come and join us!)

As well as points there are penalties, so check the background of your photos carefully!

Camp and/or Compete

Teams of Explorer Scouts, Scout Network or joint Explorer/Network (in different classes) from across the North East region can choose to either:

  • Camp for two nights at West Hall Campsite (South Tyneside), with activities and Friday supper, Saturday breakfast, Saturday evening barbecue and Sunday breakfast, and take part in the Monopoly Run on the Saturday (£30 per person)
  • Just take part in the Monopoly Run on Saturday (£15 per person)

The event is open to teams of between three and six Explorer Scouts, Scout Network members or a combination of both (note that sleeping will be segregated by section)

Note that leaders camping Friday - Sunday are asked to pay £10 to cover camping and catering costs (limited indoor accommodation available) - those just helping on the Saturday pay nothing
