Latest News

Everyone who is registered on the Keswick 2 Barrow website will have received an email recently asking them to reset their password. This is a legitimate email. We have been advised that due to a hack of our old website approximately 4 years ago, people's passwords may have been stolen at that time. We have recently had reports of them being used in phishing emails. Unfortunately, some of our members have reused old passwords when registering on the new website, which is never advisable, particularly in this case.

We therefore ask everyone registered on the website to reset their password to something new. We would also recommend that if you use this password elsewhere you change it as well. We would like to assure everyone that the new (current) website is secure, and there is no evidence of hacking. Also, please note that we have never stored any personal financial information such as bank card details on the website, as all payments are processed by a secure third party, and always have been. If you have any queries, please email them to info@keswick2barrow.co.uk.

Watch out for more info on next year's walk which will be held on the 11 th May 2019.

Become a business sponsor

The Keswick to Barrow (K2B) & Coniston to Barrow (C2B) Walks depend on business sponsorship to enable the event to take place and cover operating costs. Unavoidable costs include vehicle hire, marquees, fuel, stationery, security, signage, communications, and refreshments for walkers. There are NO costs deducted for committee expenses or time, which are all given voluntarily. Business sponsorship may be given as a financial donation, or in the form of services or materials to support the event. Business sponsors are recognised in event marketing on walk day, on the K2B website (listing on Business Sponsors page & logo shown randomly on the right-hand side-panel on every page), and at the charity awards night in Autumn. If you wish to become associated with the event, please contact us to discuss opportunities. Email: sponsor@keswick2barrow.co.uk
