Welcome to the Workington to Keswick Charity website. We look forward to seeing familiar
and new faces on this years walk which will hopefully be in better conditions than
last years - the worst in its history from many accounts!
The Thirty Seventh Annual Workington to Keswick Charity Walk will take place on Sunday,
23rd March , 2014. Walkers will once again gather at the Royal British Legion Club
Workington early in the morning before setting of on the 32 miles trek 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
35 years ago and in that time over 7000 people have taken part and thousands of pounds
raised for local charities.
