What is the Cleveland Hike?

A competitive hiking event like no other...

The Cleveland Hike is designed to let you test your fitness, orienteering skill and determination by competing against other teams of hikers across the weekend. Entrants can choose to compete in the full two day competition (30 miles) or either of the single day events (choose from 10 or 20 miles).

*overall distances may vary slightly based on the finalised routes.

What is the Cleveland Hike?

Push your limits and use your skill to succeed

Using only maps and compasses, navigate your way from checkpoint to checkpoint across the North Yorkshire Moors. Points are awarded based on the reaching each checkpoint within the target times and by successfully completing the either physical, skill based or mental challenges at each checkpoint. 

The hike is an inclusive event, with friendly expert support on hand every step of the way, to help make it a great experience you’ll never forget!​
