The Burley Bridge Hike - Saturday 24 October 2020
After a gap of a few years, the popular Burley Bridge Hike returns for one year only! The 21 mile challenge walk over Ilkley, Addingham and Burley Moors was run annually for many years to raise funds for the Bridge Campaign, coordinated by members of the Long Distance Walkers Association (the LDWA). We are grateful that some of the original team have offered to help organise this one off event to help raise the profile of the campaign and generate funds.
The attractive high level route can either be run or walked around a number of checkpoints, and this year will start and finish at Burley Cricket Club, Grange Road, in the centre of the village. Parking will be available on site or in nearby roads. Refreshments will be available before the walk, at selected points around the route, and at the finish. Burley Cricket Club have also kindly offered to open their bar to quench thirsts for those wanting an alcoholic alternative to tea and coffee! More details will be announced shortly including the on-line booking arrangements.
