Welcome to the British Walking Federation Website

LATEST NEWS

The British Walking Federation (BWF) has been monitoring the news about the world outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19). Following the advice given by the Government and Health Officials to reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus (Covid-19), the BWF has reluctantly taken the decision to postpone the AGM on Saturday 4th April 2020 until later in the year.

At present, most permanent trails remain open, but please remember to check the BWF website for any that may have been suspended. If a walker undertakes a permanent trail, they must at all times comply with the government’s latest directives. This will, of course, depend on where walkers live in relationship to the route and the need to avoid non-essential travel, regulating the time spent out of their homes and using ‘social distancing’.

The 20:20 Challenge will be reviewed when the current restrictions have been sufficiently removed with regard to a possible extension. 

The BWF will advise of a new date for the AGM in due course and will notify our clubs and individual members. It is strongly recommended that walkers planning to attend a club event should check with the club concerned that the event is still taking place.
