Anyone up for a hiking challenge?

2018 saw this challenge as part of the Festival for the first time – the feedback received was superb. Doable but certainly challenging. The KMF 3 Peaks Challenge will take you on an 18 mile hike around the 3 peaks which surround this picturesque Festival and town – Catbells, Walla Crag and Latrigg – with a total ascent of just over 1,000m.

You will leave the Festival Village between 7.30am and 9am; your challenge is to return by 5pm (within 8 hours), when you will cross the finish line to applause and adulation.

Distance: 18 miles
Ascent: 1,000m


This event includes chip timing. All entrants receive a T-shirt and a free concert ticket for the live music on either Friday or Saturday night.
You will enter the entrants details at checkout.


Camping (& concert tickets) will be available to buy in January. If you have booked a sports event you will get priority access before they go on general sale. We will notify you by email when bookings are open.
