Coast Along for WaterAid walkers

Coast Along launches with nearly 250 paths to choose from including 2 new circular walks!

We want this year to be the biggest Coast Along yet, with over 2000 people walking for water on 10 September 2011.

We have increased the number of paths involved in the event from 187 to nearly 250 paths this year, so there are plenty to choose from ranging from Ayreshire in Scotland to Pembrokeshire in Wales, and even on the Isle of Wight!  So spread the word and let’s get walking!

If you would like to come together and walk with other WaterAid supporters we have some exciting new editions for this year! We are introducing two circular walks which will take place around the stunning South Downs and the vibrant Cardiff Bay. These start and finish in the same place and give you the opportunity to meet and walk with lots of other people. There will even be refreshments served at the end for you to endulge in, including a cream tea at the end of the South Downs Walk!

We are hoping that these will become the flagship events for Coast Along, so why not find out more about these events and the other walks taking place by visiting the Event page.

    Really looking forward to my second Coast Along Walk from Swanage to South Haven Point. This time last year, I was learning to walk again following a stroke so this walk will not be easy for me in any way but detmined to get to the end and raise some funds for Wateraid as having lead a charity project to the Gambia to put a borehole, solar pump and standpipes in a remote village – I really understand the importance of safe clean drinking water for so many people that still do not have the luxury of water on tap.
