On Saturday 8th May two teams battled it out for the Resolution Cup. The Barrow shipyard narrowly defended their winning streak against a team from the Royal Navy on a day that typified Lake District weather (wet, wet and more wet, then once you've gone home, sunshine).

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.

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’.
