Latest News

Everyone who is registered on the Keswick 2 Barrow website will have received an email recently asking them to reset their password. This is a legitimate email. We have been advised that due to a hack of our old website approximately 4 years ago, people's passwords may have been stolen at that time. We have recently had reports of them being used in phishing emails. Unfortunately, some of our members have reused old passwords when registering on the new website, which is never advisable, particularly in this case.

We therefore ask everyone registered on the website to reset their password to something new. We would also recommend that if you use this password elsewhere you change it as well. We would like to assure everyone that the new (current) website is secure, and there is no evidence of hacking. Also, please note that we have never stored any personal financial information such as bank card details on the website, as all payments are processed by a secure third party, and always have been. If you have any queries, please email them to info@keswick2barrow.co.uk.

Watch out for more info on next year's walk which will be held on the 11 th May 2019.

Recognition for Walkers & Marshals

To recognise the achievement of completing the 40 mile walk, K2B walkers are conferred membership of 'The Fellowship of the Ancient Order of Barking Dogs'. The origins of the fellowship are rooted in the history of the walk, with Barking Dogs being a 1950’s American term for aching feet, so totally apt for this walk and hence ‘Ye Ancient Order of Barking Dogs’.
