East Kilbride wins in Annual Adventure Challenge

Wednesday 21st August 2019

The 7th East Kilbride won the newly presented Willie Brownlie Cup in this year’s Kilbryde Hike. The Senior team, beat off stiff competition to be crowned this year’s winners covering a gruelling 29 miles.

In the ‘Expedition’ category, the winners were 2nd East Kilbride, who did the best trekking 20 miles and also completing their checkpoint challenges along the way to clinch top spot.

The ‘Junior’ category was won by 25th Stirling (Dunblane) with the one day ‘Explorer’ category being won by 4th Carluke BB.

The Hike is a competitive two-day adventure challenge in the hills of South Lanarkshire and East Ayrshire run by The Boys’ Brigade although open to entries from all youth organisations. This year’s event attracted a total of 125 young people from 31 teams and also included members from Scouts Scotland.

Over the last 50 years the Kilbryde Hike has given over 8,000 young people from around the UK the chance to develop teamwork, resilience and expedition skills. As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations, teams were encouraged to raise funds to support the work of local charity Kilbryde Hospice, and to date just over £500 has been raised.

Next year the hike will take place on 13th -14th June 2020. For more information contact: kilbrydehike@bbglasgow.org.uk.
