2020/21 Walk Update

With 2020 drawing to a close and New Year's resolutions around the corner, the K2B Committee wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays and advise of our plans for the next year.

The Committee plan to keep in close contact with local Councils and Cumbria Police to understand how things are changing and what we can achieve in terms of an event. We plan to make a firmer announcement in March for the year but would like to share the provisional stance.

While news of the vaccine being distributed is excellent news, we do not believe we will be able to hold a full event in May.

The 2020 postponed K2B and C2B walks are pencilled in for 18th September 2021. This will of course be subject to the guidelines at the time but we are hopeful that by this point the situation will be such that the walk can go ahead.

We plan to hold the Resolution Cup Challenge that was postponed in September 2020 prior to the full walk in September 2021 if circumstances allow.

All walkers already registered for the 2020 walk will remain so and teams will remain as is. We look to reopen registration in May which will allow team coordinators to modify their teams and if spaces are available new walkers to join.

 

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.

Horrace (Pick up)

Horrace Farm

  • Miles to go: 7.53

At this point you are now on top of the Moor and is the first opportunity to provide support to your team since Lowick. There is very limited parking for support vehicles, so this point should only be used by support crews to pick up tired or injured walkers who are dropping out of the walk.

  • First Aid - at Horrace
  • Support vehicles only for collecting dropouts

INTERESTING FACT: As you proceed along the moor, Morecambe Bay can be viewed to the left with Blackpool and the Pennines beyond. To the right is the Duddon Estuary, the Irish Sea and the Isle of Man (Ireland and Wales can also be seen on a clear day). Ahead is the Furness peninsula and the islands surrounding the port of Barrow. The fictional Island of Sodor in the Thomas the Tank Engine stories was based on an amalgamation of Walney Island and the Isle of Man.
