The Keswick to Barrow (K2B) walk is an annual Lake District event. Teams of 4 to 12 members take on either the 40 mile K2B or 21.1 mile Coniston to Barrow (C2B) route. This is a sponsored walking or running event with participants raising vital funds for approved charities including ourselves. On average, it takes runners 4 hours to complete the course and walkers finish in 8 -12 hours, giving you plenty of time to take in the beautiful views. Along the route there are 8 official timing checkpoints, as well as food and drink stations, first aid and support.
How do I get involved?
All walkers commit to pay a £15 (£10 for Under 17) non-refundable and non-transferrable entry processing fee, and to raise target donations of £80 (£40 for Under 17) (excluding Gift Aid). Please note this is a third party event, Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw holds no responsibility over the running of the day.
To register please visit the K2B website and nominate us as your chosen charity. Once you’ve completed the registration process email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and walker ID so that we can support you with your fundraising.
