Keswick Mountain Festival is the UK’s #1 Mountain Festival and largest mulit-sport participatory event. KMF offers a fantastic mix of outdoor sports, activities and live music in the Lake District. There is a varied choice of sports events (trail runs, triathlon, swimming, cycling, hiking, and adventure), activities, and entertainment aimed to inspire all ages and abilities. Set in one of the most beautiful parts of the Lake District, it’s a family friendly outdoors festival for everyone to enjoy.

With a huge programme of activities, world class speakers, sporting events, camping and live music in the evening, there is something for every adventurer at the Keswick Mountain Festival.


We live for the outdoors and the Lake District. They are both integral to who we are and the lifestyle we choose. Keswick Mountain Festival believes in an outdoors for everyone and exists to help visitors develop skills, discover new ones – or to simply hang-out with people who share a common outlook.

The festival also gives an opportunity to stand back, listen, learn and admire the abilities of the world’s best athletes, mountaineers and local legends too. With its stunning scenery, unrivalled setting and its natural arena, Keswick is the perfect location for a Mountain Festival and an ideal starting point for adventure.

Accessibility & Inclusivity 

KMF aspires not merely to cater to the existing community of outdoor enthusiasts but to embrace and welcome those who seldom encounter the extraordinary marvels of the great outdoors. We seek to enable them to experience the exhilaration of participation alongside the glowing pride of accomplishment. 

Within Keswick we aim to create a festival of unparalleled distinction, one that nurtures the local community and bolsters employment opportunities.  


We seek to forge a lasting, positive environmental impact by enabling our mountain-scape to flourish. 


FESTIVAL ownership

Keswick Mountain Festival has been running since 2007.

KMF is owned and operated by Triathlon Edinburgh Ltd. We are a sports management company, working alongside Durty Events and have been involved in delivering the Festival since 2016 .

With our background in sports management we believe we are well placed to further improve the quality of the experience for all visitors, with an emphasis on the delivery of all sports. We want to work closely with the town of Keswick, local stakeholders, sponsors and exhibitors to ensure the event develops in line with their objectives and wishes and we believe strong community ties are essential to the success of any event.
