The Coast to Coast Walk is a 182-mile (293 km) unofficial and mostly unsignposted long-distance footpath in Northern England. Devised by Alfred Wainwright, it passes through three contrasting national parks: the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the North York Moors National Park.


We have chosen this as part of our Coastal  Series purely because it is on my list of long distance walks I would like to do in real life !


So walk, run, cycle, row or complete any other distance based activity to cover the 182 miles. Download our App and track your progress along the way.


You can either enter this as a single event, or you can enter the whole coastal series which covers just over 1000 miles and receive a free 1000 Mile in 2021 medal.


The series includes :

Anglesey Coastal Path

Scottish Coast to Coast 

English coast to Coast

Irish Coast to Coast

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.


This event starts on the 1st January and the event will be available on the App on the 30th December 2020.


The early bird price of £12.50 for this event extends to the 1st December when it will revert to its normal price of £13.50.
