British Walking Federation

BWF MEDIUM DISTANCE WALKS

Recognised Medium Distance Walks between distances of 50 to 99km in Great Britain are eligible for IVV Awards. As these walking trails are becoming more popular and extensive, the BWF will now credit a walker with IVV Distance and Event stamps

REGISTRATION

To register for a Medium Distance Walk you need to complete a Registration Form and submit it together with the registration fee of £2.00 to the BWF Trails Officer.
On registration, you will be issued with a Report Book which you should complete on a daily basis. Each day you should record the date, distance walked, weather and collect a dated till receipt, shop/hotel stamp etc. The information collected acts as a check that the walk has actually been completed. If you need more pages these can be
downloaded.

COMPLETION

On completion of the Walk or part of a Walk you should send your report book together with the validation fee of £5.00 to the BWF Trails Officer. He will issue the appropriate IVV credit for the distance completed and event stamps as per the new IVV guidelines of 1 event stamp for each 20 kilometres completed. Those who complete the full Walk will receive a colour certificate of achievement. Those who only walk part of a trail will receive IVV credit as detailed above but will not receive a certificate.

There is a special Challenge, which is to complete 100 different BWF registered Permanent Trails, National Trails, Medium Distance Walks and Long Distance Walks. For more information go to PT100 Challenge.
