Keswick Mountain Festival gets under way

Posted in Dishing the Dirt by Matt Ward on Wed 13 May '09


The Festival started on Wednesday (13) with the Latrigg fell race (also covered on the excellent CumbriaLive TV) and runs to Sunday the 17th. Those sharp cookies at Keswick AC have already got the race images online, just follow the links from the homepage.

As reported on MST a few weeks back the festival offers diverse outdoor activities and a whole host of things to see and do. Jez Bragg will be there, 2008 English Fell Champion Natalie White will be there, Salomon Forest Trails will be there, so head on over to Cumbria this weekend for what appears to be a great weekend of outdoor activities and entertainment.

About MST

Mud, Sweat and Tears was dreamt up some time ago. I had returned to the sport of running (competitively) after around a 15 year layoff due to injury.
