The British Walking Federation has two types of members, individuals and clubs. Both pay a small annual membership fee which allows them to take advantage of what the Federation has to offer.

Individual Membership

This type of membership ensures that you are personally informed of the latest news from the BWF. You receive a Membership Card, a copy of our annual Events Yearbook, regular newsletters, BWF members discount at Mountain Warehouse, discounted subscription offered for The Great Outdoors (TGO) Magazine, Great Magazines discounted subscription, Magic Mountain, Ordnance Survey Map Shop, Cicerone books and 2 BWF Permanent Trail Vouchers. For more details see our Useful Links page.

Individual members pay a fee of £10.00 per year, but we also offer family membership (up to 2 adults and 4 children) for a reduced fee of £12.00 per year.  Just complete the membership application form and send it, along with your membership fee to our Membership Officer.

Club Membership

Member Clubs agree to abide by the British Walking Federation Constitution and Rules. They are then allowed to organise events and permanent trails in Great Britain which qualify for the IVV Individual Achievement Award Scheme. Approved events and permanent trails appear in the IVV International Events Calendar, the BWF annual Events Calendar and on our website.

Being part of a National Organisation gives your club status.  You will be able to contribute to the organisation of the BWF by attending our meetings and voting for Committee Members at our AGM.  You will also be able to take advantage of the Third Party Insurance Scheme for your events that is offered to our member clubs.

Contact BWF Secretary for more details.
