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.

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.
