KIRKSTONE CAR PULL: now that’s what we call a Struggle!
Date: Sunday 24 September
Venue: Ambleside town centre to Kirkstone Pass via The Struggle
Starting from: Ambleside Post Office, North Road.
Last year’s Car Pull, in which a team of women hauled a car all the way from the centre of Ambleside to the summit of Kirkstone Pass, was one of the spectator highlights of Festival of the Fells.
The orange-clad women broke their record by completing the pull up the fearsome slopes of The Struggle in 1 hour 2 minutes.
This year, there is a men’s team are attempting to beat the WORLD RECORD of 52.20mins.
