The Boy Scouts are celebrating another successful Scout Week by holding the annual Klondike Derby.

Around 15 troops participate in Bristol's derby.

Each troop builds their own sled and stocks it with supplies. They race through downtown and stop at different stations where they face challenges to test their scout skills.

"The derby also tests their leadership skills. The scouts have to organize themselves to see how well they can do," said Sam Belew, the chairman of the Klondike Derby.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Bristol's Klondike Derby. This year is also the first time an all girl troop of Boy Scouts participated in the race.
