Kington 8 Peaks. 21/09/2019. The Carter Cartel juggernaut is unstoppable.

A local event covering 14.5 miles and 3,300FT of elevation. What more could you want? It’s incorporated into the Kington Walking Festival and, not surprisingly, includes the 8 summits around Kington with the last being the trig point on Hergest Ridge.
With stunning weather on their side, Mark, Imme, Martin, Addy and John (plus their dogs) teamed up for a fantastic day out in the hills. You can choose your own route and have to clip your card at the various check points.
Finding their way was no problem for this elite team especially as two of them were fresh from Bethan’s recent navigation course!
Some people go for a quick time, the Hotfooters simply jogged round enjoying the company and excellent scenery. The medals and cakes for all finishers were also a bonus.
A slight variation of this course, organised as a half marathon, is held in the spring where the course is flagged and marshals are in attendance.
