The Event - England and Wales

The fourth Coast Along for WaterAid event took place on Saturday 11 September 2010.

This year we had the support of even more walkers, ramblers and runners to help us achieve our challenge: to get at least one team walking on all 187 sections of selected coastal paths throughout England, Wales and Scotland and to raise money for WaterAid.

The scenery is spectacular, the heritage is rich and varied, the beaches and coves inviting, the cliffs inspiring, a taste of the West and Wales. All in all a great day out!

Fourteen regions have been divided into 187 sections of between four and 15 miles in length. Each section is graded as easy, moderate, strenuous or severe, so you can choose a path that suits your level of fitness. There is something for everybody: for families, ramblers, long-distance walkers and even marathon runners. Some of the path sections are suitable for use by wheelchairs and buggies.

We ask each team member aims to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship for WaterAid, with family teams or children raising whatever they can. To help, every team will have the option of setting up an online sponsor page or receiving a team or individual sponsor form to print out.

We’ll be with you every step of the way!
