Welcome

The Brow Hike is a hiking competition held annually over 2 days in March each year. The event takes the form of an incident hike over 30km (19 miles), and was last held on the 18th and 19th March 2016.

Set in the scenic Calder Valley in West Yorkshire, the hike broadly follows the old Sowerby Bridge Urban District Council Boundary. Some legs of the hike are timed, while others are navigation tests with the exact route not disclosed until the day.

The hike is open to teams of 4 people aged between 11 and 15, although the total age of the team when added together must not exceed 56.

For details of what happened on the 2015 hike, see our Last Event page.
