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.
