Keswick Mountain Festival 2018

Another group of Striders headed to the Lakes but this time it was the Nicholls and Taylor families plus friends for “KMF” rather than “BGR”. The Keswick Mountain Festival has a wide variety of events to choose from (runs, swims, sportives, triathlons including kids events) with the added bonus of live music in the evenings and stunning scenery.
Saturday began with a 5K swim in the lake for Kristy N and Amy T (Matt’s wife), then a 5K trail run for Luke N.
Sunday started very early with a 50K trail run for Andy N and, during the 8+ hours that took, Matt T did the long triathlon (including cycling the epic Honister Pass).

In the Junior aquathlon, Zoe N, Ella T and Reuben T all finished with podium positions.
Junior Strider Zoe won the 11/12 girls event.
Who’s going to join us next year?
