2020/21 Walk Update

Following the news this week of the UK's roadmap out of lockdown, the K2B Committee would like to reaffirm that we plan to hold the postponed 2020 walk on the 18th September 2021. This will of course be subject to any guidelines at the time.

We plan to hold the Resolution Cup Challenge that was postponed in September 2020 prior to the full walk. This is currently planned to take place on the 8th May though may shift a little depending on Government guidelines as we reach May.

All walkers already registered for the 2020 walk will remain so and teams will remain as is. We'll be reviewing the current teams with coordinators after the Resolution Cup Challenge mid-year so if you're not already registered or are thinking that maybe after 18 months of practice it's time to upgrade to the full 40 miles, there's still plenty of opportunity.

The blue "P" signs on the above map are indicative only, and represent roadside parking areas.

Please park on Hawcoat Lane or on the nearby roads. Limited parking is available in the Hoops car park off Thorncliffe Road.

Do not park on the walk route. Car parking at the sports club is reserved for event pass holders only.

Unfortunately, parking in this area can be quite difficult at peak times, so be prepared to park further away than you would ideally like, and walk to the sports club.

Users of the car parking areas do so at their own risk. The organisers will not accept responsibility for damage, accident or loss.

Do not bring dogs (except guide dogs) into the sports club grounds.
