Revised timings for September 2021. As daylight hours will be shorter than in May, we'll be making some changes to timings to reduce the risk of walking on dark roads. As such, the Kewick walk will be starting at 06:00 with the Coniston walk starting at 07:00 and the following cut-off times will be in place: Coniston 13:00, Lowick 16:00, Rakes 18:00, Marton 19:00, Dalton 20:00

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’.
