137 walkers trek between 6 and 22-miles for the Foundation
A record turnout at our Mini Coastal Walk Challenge on Sunday, saw 137 walkers don their walking boots to raise money for the Foundation.
The Challenge, a shortened version of our main Coastal Walk Challenge, welcomed the walkers to the Norfolk Coastal Path to hike between 6 and 22-miles.
Toughing out a cold start, a steady stream of walkers – easily identifiable in their bright yellow t-shirts – made their way from the start point in Hunstanton to their chosen finish point: Thornham (6-miles), Burnham Deepdale (12-miles) and Wells-Next-the-Sea (22-miles).
As ever, the walkers got to enjoy beautiful scenery, friendly camaraderie and – when the going got tough – blisters and aches patched up by the Challenge’s dedicated support team.
“It’s been a wonderful day, and so nice to see so many families and familiar faces taking part,” reflected Emma Fletcher, CSF Senior Fundraising & Events Manager, as the last walkers crossed the line in Wells.
“We’ve had walkers as young as five take on the walk today, and there’s been some fantastic determination and resilience on show. It’s a great way to start our challenge events season.”
