A picture of people ziplining from the Cow rock on Ilkley Moor


Zip the Cow is back for 2023.

Walk to the top of the iconic ‘cow’ at the Cow and Calf Rocks above Ilkley and then jump from it, sliding 270m at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour.

Participants will take in spectacular views of Wharfedale....if they dare open their eyes!

This event is an ideal activity for those who want to do something special to celebrate a big birthday and to benefit a great local charity in the process.

Unlike a run or cycle ride, it requires zero training (though a degree of bravery is required). In previous events, we've had participants ranging in age from 8 to 80, some of whom had disabilities, so it really is an event for all.
