Mayor’s Challenge in Memory of Queen Elizabeth II

As Keswick’s newly elected Mayor, Councillor Steve Harwood is to complete 365 different ways to the summit of Latrigg over the coming year to support our Keswick Parks and local projects.

This is being done with the kind permission and support of the landowner and will start on 19 May 2022.

This will be the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest from sea level over 10 times.
