Walking Festival

Windermere to host the Lake District Walking Festival.

The Jane Tomlinson Walk For All comes to the area
Hailed as the biggest charity event of its kind to come to the region the Lake District Walking Festival will take place on Sunday 9th September when thousands of walkers will pull on thier walking boots to take part in one of three walks. With distances suitable for everyone, participants will have the opportunity to take part in either an 18mile, 13mile or 4.5mile walk enjoying the breath-taking views whilst walking with friends and family. Following on from Walk For All’s highly successful walking festivals in the Yorkshire Dales in 2011 and the Peak District walk in April this year, which saw thousands of people take to the countryside in support of their chosen charity, the Lakes walk is set to be a fantastic addition to the series. Thanks to the support from the Lake District National Park the three routes have been designed to be ecologically friendly whilst showcasing the Windermere at its best. With three separate starts each walk will take in different sections of the Lake before finishing together at Brockhole National Park Visitors Centre. Those taking part in the 13mile and 18mile walk can then enjoy a leisurely cruise back to Bowness (13mile) and Lakeside (18mile) with Windermere Lake Cruises.
