Coast to Coast Walk - Starts 25th June
Marc Norman and Steve Bright are going to be walking Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk in aid of Greyhound Gap' Kennel Fund starting on 25th June 2011.
The Coast to Coast walk is a 196 mile walk from St Bee's Head in Cumbria to Robin Hoods Bay in Yorkshire. The Irish sea to the North Sea. The walk passes through the 3 national parks of the Lake District the Yorkshire Dales and finally the North Yorkshire Moors, also passing through along the way the Pennines and the Clevaland Hills.
Marc and Steve have tweaked the walk slightly to make it officially 200 miles and intend to complete this over 8 nights and 9 days. They will be walking an average of 22.2 miles a day, although some days will be shorter and much longer!
You can follow progress of the walk on Marc and Steve's blog - Coast to Coast Walk Blog
Marc and Steve have personal reasons for choosing Greyhound Gap as their nominated chairty; Steve sadly lost ' MAX ' whom was rescued and was able to see out his remaining 3 years in a loving environment and Marc's family have been rescuing hounds for some 15 years.
The lads hope to achieve a target of £2,500 to present to Gap through various events that will take place prior to the walk. More information about these can be found on their Facebook Page - click here
If you can spare a few pounds you can sponsor Marc and Steve via their Just Giving page - click here
Good luck Marc and Steve, thank you so much for doing this for Gap!
