Save the Date
To celebrate my big birthday next year I’m arranging a hike up Helvellyn which, appropriately enough, is the mountain that gave me my name. The route I’ve discussed is slightly off the beaten track, will take around 6 hours and is suitable for anyone with reasonable fitness.
I’ve spoken to the mountain guides and pencilled in Saturday 21st May for the hike itself. We will start nice and early 8:30am to get the paths to ourselves.
This date also coincides with Keswick Mountain Festival so I intend to make a weekend of it! The festival offers multiple sporting options from trail runs to wild swims and live music on the lakeside on the evening.
Whether you want to come for the day or for the whole shebang it would be wonderful to have you along. I’ll share details of the walk and accommodation options later but in the meantime if you want to come and join the fun please save the date!
