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.

Lowick Bridge (Vehicles)

  • OS Grid Ref: SD 292 865
  • Nearest postcode: LA12 8EF
  • Follow blue arrows when arriving, brown arrows when leaving.

There is a field at Lowick Bridge for support vehicle parking. Please park sensibly in the field or on the roadside verges, and don’t block gateways, side roads, etc.

Users of the car park do so at their own risk. The organisers will not accept responsibility for damage, accident or loss.

THE LOWICK JUNCTION WILL BE POLICE CONTROLLED. ANY OBSTRUCTION OR PARKING WHERE THERE ARE POLICE RESTRICTIONS WILL RESULT IN A POSSIBLE PARKING TICKET.

DO NOT FOLLOW THE WALK ROUTE “OVER THE TOP” OF KIRKBY MOOR.

From Lowick proceed on the main road (A5084/A590) via Greenodd and on to Ulverston. A “PICK UP POINT” is available at Horrace cross roads. Make your way up on to Kirkby Moor and intersect the route ONLY IF YOU REQUIRE TO PICK UP A RETIREE.

From Ulverston you can proceed via the A590 to Tarn Flatt, south of the village of Marton to rejoin the walk route. It is appreciated that the walk route from Lowick “over the top” to Marton is particularly arduous and again an official support vehicle has been arranged. This will vehicle collect the lame and take them to the Marton checkpoint, or, if necessary, the First Aid post at the Black Dog junction.
