KMF 2018 to host Free Solo UK Premiere
Here it is; the film that everyone's been talking about. Kendal hosts the UK Premiere of Free Solo, the amazing story of Alex Honnold's solo ascent of Freerider on El Capitan.
There will be a challenging road bike hill climb time trial up the infamous 'Struggle' to Kirkstone pass, an open water swim in Lake Windermere, fell running races around the local hills suitable for all levels and abilities, guided bike rides, bushcraft and foraging demonstrations, a fell walkers foot clinic and a chance to have a go at rock climbing. There'll also be loads of films and lectures, art and photography exhibitions. It's sure to be an amazing weekend.
The Climbers Shop are heavily involved with this exciting project along with other local businesses such as Bike Treks, Zefferellis and Hawkshead Brewery. Our staff will be helping out and on hand to give expert advice throughout the festival. So come along, bring the family and whatever your outdoor sport of choice you'll be guaranteed a great time.
