The Covid guidance for Keswick Rambling Club is in line with both Government and Ramblers Organisation guidance and will be updated whenever Government guidance or regulations change.
Car sharing is now supported and already taking place according to personal choice and arrangements. All members have a duty of care/courtesy towards other members using car sharing to inform if they are not double vaccinated. This is to inform the leader, driver and the car occupants and is in the spirit of open awareness.
Members have a duty to be familiar with and practice current government guidelines. Furthermore members should be aware that they join a walk at their own risk which includes Covid related issues where appropriate.
Leaders should keep a list of members on their walk for 3 weeks for tracing requirements.
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 – in the region of up to 10 miles with around 2500/3000 feet of ascent;
- Moderate – in the region of up to 8 miles with around 1500/2000 feet of ascent; and
- Easy – in the region of up to 6 miles with around 1000 feet of ascent.
