The three main charities and causes for the 2016 walk to be confirmed
Welcome to the Workington to Keswick Charity Walk website. We look forward to seeing
familiar and new faces on the walk this year.
The 40th Annual Workington to Keswick Charity Walk will take place on Sunday, 19th
March, 2017. Walkers will once again gather at the Royal British Legion Club Workington
early in the morning before setting of on the long trek covering over 30 miles to
Keswick. They will set off in small or large groups with their start time recorded
so everyone will get a time for completing the walk. Entries are invited from anyone
over the age of 16. Both walkers and joggers are welcome but the Organisers would
like to emphasise that the event is not a race and although each individual's total
time is noted, the main aim is to complete the course.
Our aim is to raise money for local West Cumbrian charities and to further interest
in walking. Tremendous interest has been shown in the walk since its inauguration
40 years ago and in that time nearly 9000 people have taken part and thousands of
pounds raised for local charities and good causes.
