The postponed 2020 Keswick and Coniston walks will be taking place on the 18th September.

We'll be re-opening registration in June  for co-ordinators to add new teams and additional walkers to teams. As well as to take registration fees for those who haven't paid yet (fees paid in 2020 will roll over) - Please Note we are awaiting the Government announced on the next phase of Covid easing before re-opening our on-line Registration Payment system.

Coordinators can modify their teams today. You can remove walkers or swap walkers up to your current registered team size.

If you are currently in a team but your coordinator can no longer administer the team, please contact us at registration@keswick2barrow.co.uk
