Organised by Kendal Rotary

The 3rd Kendal Community Walk
10th May 2020

Here are summaries of the three routes.  You will find more details and how to enter on other pages.

All routes start at Kirkbie Kendal School between 1.00pm and 2.00pm.

Route A: Kirkbie Kendal to Sedgwick and back via Hawes Bridge. Pretty flat with some stiles and possibly slightly muddy. (10.5km - 6.5miles)

Route B: Kirkbie Kendal to Hawes Bridge and back. Like route A but a shorter distance perhaps for pre-primary folk (6km - 3.75miles)

Route C: Kirkbie Kendal to Watercrook and back. This is a canal path route (no cross-country for those with mobility problems or in wheelchairs (2.5km - 1.6miles)

The routes are mainly footpaths. The crossings at Burton Road, Natland Road and Hawes Lane, and the Canal Bridge at Sedgwick will be supervised. There will be refreshments at Sedgwick Village Hall (while stocks last!).

The entry fee for each walker will be £4. This will cover costs. Any residue will be for Kendal Rotary Club’s local charity fund helping projects locally. We hope that your community group may consider refunding that £4 if sponsorship you raise exceeds (say) £20. All walkers completing their route receive a commemorative medal.
