The C2B is now full.

We will no longer be accepting new C2B teams - K2B Remains OPEN for new teams and additional walkers being added into their teams.


C2B Team coordinators can now only add a walker as a replacement for someone else in their team who has dropped out ( Walker who has dropped out must be removed first).

The Walks' Terms and Conditions and Privacy Statement have been updated for 2019. Please make sure you have read these before registering for 2019's K2B or C2B walk.

 

Thanks to all who took part in 2018's K2B and C2B walks. A massive £333,205 was given away to your charities and good causes; see our Charity Awards page for the full detail.

Any uncashed cheques from 2018will be cancelled and paid via BACS to the nominated charities.

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

Timing system

The event timing system uses a High Frequency (HF) Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging system to track and time your team members along the route. The main components of this system are the black rectangular reader (shown at the centre of the red target) and the white plastic tag.

Each tag has been mapped to a participant as defined on the Team Sheet, which is issued as part of the Final Team Registration process on the day before the walk. It is therefore very important to issue each of the tags in accordance with the Walker Number shown on the Team Sheet. Otherwise participants will be walking under the wrong name. At each checkpoint you will see at least one reader on a red target. To register progress through each checkpoint we need you to tap the reader with your tag. You should hear a beep to confirm a good read of your tag. The Checkpoint Marshal should be able to confirm your name and team details if necessary. NOTE: Your Walker Number is different to your Member ID.

  • Your Walker Number is a 5 digit number issued at the Final Team Registration for one walk only. It is in the format of a 3 digit team number, followed by a 2 digit personal identifier. For example, if you are in Team 123, and you're the 6th walker listed on the Team Sheet, your Walker Number will be 12306.
  • Your Member ID is your permanent personal identifier, issued to you once only, and used for all correspondence with the Keswick to Barrow Walk Committee.
