Determined young Bradford Scouts complete a challenging 20km walk

A group of BRADFORD scouts have completed an epic and challenging 20km walk around the borough.

The 68th Bradford Scout Group, which is based in Wyke, celebrated the achievements of their young scouts who conquered the Aire Valley Scouts ‘At Walk’ Baht on Sunday.

This challenging 20km ride, starting and finishing at Bingley Scout HQ, pushed the limits for many participants.

The route wound its way through the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, taking in the villages of Cullingworth and Harden, as well as the outskirts of Blackhills Campground.

For a unique twist, scouts even traversed the manicured fairways of Keighley Golf Course.

This achievement has particular significance as most of the participating scouts were younger members, some of whom had only recently moved on from the Cubs.

Leaders praised the youngsters’ unwavering determination and teamwork as they tackled the impressive distance, which they said embodied the true spirit of Scouting.

“We are incredibly proud of each and every one of our Scouts,” said Evelyn Haigh, Group Leader for the 68th Bradford Scouts.

“Not only did they cover a remarkable distance, but they also explored hidden gems of the Yorkshire countryside, including the beautiful Bingley St Ives estate, creating memories that will no doubt last a lifetime.”
