FOLLOW THE SEAGULLS CHARITY WALK
WHITBY, NORTH YORKSHIRE
9 -10 APRIL 2022
Moorland, ancient monuments, waterfalls, stunning coastal views and smuggler's coves. This challenge, starting in Whitby, has it all.
We get together for the start on both days and meet up at various points over the weekend, but you will step into the role of navigator on this self-supported walk. There’ll be trails to stick to, and fellow walkers to join up with, but you’ll have to consult your maps which will be annotated and provided to navigate your way around. Whether you choose to walk alone or as part of a group, we will ensure you have an amazing experience!
“For someone considering this challenge in the future I’d say absolutely do it. Not only was it an epic physical and mental challenge, it was also one of the most humbling and rewarding adventures I’ve been on. It was an incredible achievement and opportunity to truly see the best in people; sharing stories, support and collective goals. As the aches begin to fade, my gratitude for this amazing charity, and the people it has connected me with, just grows stronger and stronger.” - Sammy (2019)
