K2B Start (Walkers)

Swirls car park

  • Miles to go: 37.6

    The 2022 start is at Swirls, close to the northern end of Thirlmere, on th east side. There is very limited capacity for drop-off in the start area, and no space for parking vehicles, so all walkers are strongly encouraged to use the Happy Buses to get there. If you plan to arrive in your own car, please follow the support vehicle instructions on the following page.

    • Support vehicle drop off (no parking)
    • Toilets - at the walker assembly area

    SAFETY: There will be many walkers, and some moving vehicles in the start area. Stay alert, and pay attention to instructions from marshals. Once you've crossed the start line, walk at a pace that comes naturally. If you go either above or below your natural pace you’ll tire far more rapidly, both physically and mentally. While it’s good to journey with other walkers, you should ensure that their pace is close to yours. Completing the walk safely is much more important than a fast time. Many problems can be avoided by taking just a little longer, and allowing time for eating sugary/salty snacks at support points, drinking plenty of fluids, and tending minor injuries. Good luck!
