 The Fred Whitton Challenge 2023 took place on Sunday 7th of May under blue skies. A cracking weekend for Kendal Mint Co supporting the UKs toughest sportive, 112 miles around the steepest climbs in the Lake District. All fuelled by KMC.

We are proud to be a part of this fantastic charity event for another year. We're looking forward to the next already

The Kendal Mint Feed stations 

This year we doubled the amount of fuel available to riders on the feed-stations with a huge selection of KMC NRG BARs, Natural Energy Bars, Energy Gels and Lots of KMC ISO MIX Isotonic drink mix - a welcome sight for the riders considering the forecast was rain and cloud. 

Riders fuel up with some KMC ISO MIX at the feed station
