Keswick Mountain Fesitval

Keswick Mountain Festival took place last weekend, from 19th - 22nd May. A small team of staff attended the show, with a van packed full of goodies and show offers! The event kicked off on Thursday evening with two talks; one from Julia Bradbury, and the other Monty Halls.

Friday through to Sunday was full of sporting events, outdoor activities, music and exhibitor stands. Salomon held various trail races, there was a Derwent Island swim, triathlons, plus lots of activities for the whole family. Alpkit were on stand 42, right opposite Rohan’s Adventure Talks Tipi. Those who paid us a visit could pick up a copy of Outpost, both new and old, and browse our store. We took along Sonder Bikes, the new Ordos 2 tent and the Gravitas and Balance waterproof jackets for passers by to have a look at. We also had the new running range on show - Koulin Trail tights and Tee, Yakutian and Laika tops.

Although the weather was wet on Friday night and all day Saturday, Sunday brightened up and welcomed visitors to the site. There was food, drink, music, outdoor activities and gear up for grabs. The recipe for a great weekend!
