Kendal Rescue Round
November 2012 and two intrepid Kendal Mountain Rescue team members, with the support of their team mates and friends, completed a 24 hour (and 7 minute!!), 180km journey by bike, on foot and in kayaks around their team's area. Nearly two years on and we're ready to go again, to tell more people about the work our team do and raise some more money to help us keep doing it!
But how to go bigger? Kendal Rescue Round was all about our home turf so for Rescue Round 2 we decided we're going to visit all our fellow Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association friends! A bike journey of 180 miles will see us touch base with Kirkby Stephen, Penrith, Patterdale, Keswick, Cockermouth, Wasdale, Duddon and Furness, Coniston and Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Teams. We're not forgetting the two other organisations that make up the regional association (Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs and Cumbria Ore Mines Rescue Unit) but fortunately for us they don't operate from a base we can visit so we'll think of them while not adding to our mileage!
Dave Howarth is the evil mastermind of this plan and Kathryn Jackson feels she can't back out being the creator of the original "KRR". They are hoping to be joined by a peloton of riders from all the teams along the way.
We will be starting from the Westmorland County Show on Thursday 11th September and riding through the night in order to finish back in Kendal in time for a victory lap of town in the Kendal Torchlight Carnival on Friday 12th September.
Please come and give us a cheer at one of these events or on route and most importantly please donate to help us keep our team rescue ready 24/7/365
