Winter Walk – 2019
Location: Borrowdale, Lake District, UK
Members arrived, along with a heavy rain, to the Scafell Hotel in Borrowdale, just south of Keswick on Friday, February 1st, 2019. Team members rallied in the restaurant to propose a hiking plan for the following morning. It turned out to be an incredibly windy day with fairly wet trails from the previous day’s rain, although almost everyone managed to escape the rain for the better part of the Saturday. Slightly chilly from the wind, everyone seemed delighted to make it back to the hotel in time for tea, biscuits, and the final minutes of a Men’s World Rugby Sevens match. After a brief rest, members rallied again for a wonderful dinner! This was one of the most well attended walks in BMRES history! Some members returned to the trails again on the Sunday morning for yet another fantastic day around the Lakes and with slightly less wind!
