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.

Marton (CP7)

Snipe Ghyll

  • Miles to go: 5.25

As you start your descent into the Lower Furness area you will reach the rural village of Marton, where you will find the checkpoint at the foot of Snipe Ghyll.

  • Drinks - at Checkpoint
  • First Aid - at Checkpoint
  • Toilets - at Checkpoint
  • Support vehicle parking - Tarn Flatt (about a mile after the Checkpoint)

Walkers who reach Marton after 7:30pm 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.

Turn right, and carry on through the village towards Tarn Flatt. Continue southwards and via the Black Dog Inn junction towards Dalton.

INTERESTING FACT: The Marton War Memorial is almost identical to the Lindal War Memorial. Both are carved from Stainton limestone, and carry the names of those from the villages who lost their lives whilst serving in the First World War.
