Patagonia - 'Free' Outdoor clothing in Keswick

Fancy some 'free' outdoor gear? And not just any old tat you understand. Do you happen to be in Keswick during the 16-20th May, possibly for the Keswick Mountain Festival Programme?

Then better rush off and get your entry in for the Patagonia Challenge 3000

To quote the site "....Complete guided walks during the Festival to three Lakeland fells over 3000ft.....Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Scafell Pike ....... All participants will receive a Patagonia Capilene Base Layer on completion of one peak. Your achievement on completing “Challenge 3000” and all three peaks will be rewarded with a commemorative certificate and a Patagonia Fleece Jacket (value £50)....."

The catch? You must be on a guided walk which costs £20.

I've no idea what a Patagonia base layer costs, but without reading the terms and conditions I make that £60 for 3 walks, 1 base layer and a fleece jacket (or is that perhaps 3 base layers?)

I wonder if it includes sherpa services?

And if you do happen to have already comitted to those walks, I'm happy to take the gear instead if you really don't want it.

Thanks to Outdoors Magic for the tip off.
