On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.


Walking enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy this circular route around the popular seaside resort of Scarborough; Britain’s oldest seaside holiday resort welcoming visitors for over 360 years. Be prepared for some spectacular views along the coast and to take in some of Scarborough’s top tourist attractions as you take part in this circular walk.

Yorkshire Water are organising and funding this particular Hub Walk for their colleagues and customers, so there is no registration fee. WaterAid do ask that each person walking raises a minimum of £50 sponsorship, with children just raising whatever they can.

Yorkshire Water is investing significantly along the Yorkshire coastline to help achieve an excellent bathing water quality standard. This event will allow our customers and colleagues the chance to experience this at the same time as raising money!

This is an easy walk starting and finishing at Scarborough Sports Centre, where there are free parking and toilet facilities.

Be prepared for some spectacular views of Scarborough and its castle as you set off towards the South Bay. 

You will walk along the coast past the fabulous Winter Gardens and the Grand Hotel as well as a variety of seafront attractions, cafes and restaurants, ice-cream vendors and donkeys on the beach.  Then on into the North Bay with its colourful beach huts, and even a larger than life size sculpture of a man looking out to sea where you might want to stop and pose for a photo.  From there you will enjoy a stroll through Scarborough’s famous Peasholm Park with its lovely boating lake and peaceful woodland, before returning the Cinder Track. 

Look out for our friendly CoastAlong marshalls who will be along the route to help you find your way!

At the finish, you will be treated to a well deserved reception, courtesy of Yorkshire Water, providing a great end to the day!
