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 Walk Day In Case of Emergency (ICE) phone number has changed. It is now 0777 888 4020. The new number will be printed on lanyards and route cards.

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.
