Big event to welcome Keswick to Barrow finishers
Last updated at 08:18, Thursday, 27 March 2014
Organisers of the annual Keswick to Barrow walk hope to host their biggest finish line event ever.
They want to attract up to 5,000 people to the finish line to welcome the walkers as they return.
Entry to the field, at Hawcoat Park sports club, is free and there will be entertainment, stalls and food concessions to keep spectators occupied all day.
Michael Hughes, of BAE Systems which helps support the walk, said: “The field will be open to the public from 9am.
“There will be a coffee place selling cakes and various stalls, including a hog roast.
“As well as it being an occasion for the walkers and runners and their families, it’s a community event on the day that anyone can come along to.
“We’re hoping it’s going to be good weather and it should just be an enjoyable environment for the public and walkers to enjoy after they finish.”
The stalls will be located on the upper field; the walkers and runners will finish on the lower field where they will receive vouchers for free food and drink.
To apply go to forms.k2bwalk.com/introduction. The deadline closes a week before the event on May 10.
