In line with Government guidance on organised outdoor activities from 29th March 2021, walks recommenced on Wednesday 31st March. Covid secure Group walks are classified by the UK Government as ‘organised physical activities’ and can take place in groups larger than six.
As a club affiliated to The Ramblers Association and whose guidance we are following, Keswick Rambling Club requests members to adhere to the following guidance (click here) in addition to the existing Club Rules to enable safe walking.
Keswick Rambling Club was formed in 1954 and provides a regular programme of walks throughout the Lake District and Cumbria. Our aim is to enjoy the spectacular scenery our region has to offer in a relaxed and friendly group. We are open to new members living all or part of the time in Cumbria and our subscription is currently £5 per year. The Club offers up to three levels of walks fortnightly on Wednesdays and Sundays, with car sharing to the start. Our walks are led by members and they do not have specific qualifications or technical expertise. Members join walks at their own risk.
There are three grades of walk (approximate guidelines depending on weather, time of year, etc):
- Challenging – 8 to 10 miles with 2500/3000 feet of ascent;
- Moderate – 6 to 8 miles with 1500/2000 feet of ascent; and
- Easy – in the region of up to 5 to 6 miles with up to 1000 feet of ascent.
