Walkers who reach the Red Lion Inn at Lowick Bridge after 4:30pm will be stopped at this point, for their own protection, and to safeguard the volunteer marshals further down the route. This is non-negotiable. Transport will be provided to the finish.
INTERESTING FACT: Every May Bank Holiday one household in Lowick village hosts a 'duck race', whereby plastic ducks are put into the stream in the house's garden and 'raced' against each other. In 2002 a competitor was disqualified when it was discovered that he had greased his ducks with lard in order to speed their progress.
