Wirral Coastal Walk Sunday Sunday 17th May 2009!!


The Rotary Club of North Wirral organised the first Wirral Coastal Walk in 1987. From the humble beginnings of a few hundred walkers, it has grown to become a well-known annual event in the Wirral calendar and probably the biggest of its kind in the North West. In 2008 over 5,000 walkers participated and raised an estimated £350,000.00 for local, national and international charities.

The Walk follows the Wirral coastline from Seacombe Ferry on the River Mersey to Thurstaston Country Park on the River Dee, a distance of 15 miles. For more details of the route see our page titled 'The Route'.

It is a fun event for walkers of all ages and abilities. Its main attraction, apart from the exercise and the opportunity to view the beautiful Wirral coastline, is that Walkers can raise money through sponsorship for the charity or ‘good cause’ of their own choosing. For many local organisations and charities, the Walk has become a significant event in their money-raising calendar.

Every aspect of the event is organised and controlled by the Rotary Club. All a walker needs to do is send for a sponsorship form, obtain some sponsorship, turn up on the day, pay the registration fee and participate.

There are bands at the start and finish of the Walk. Free orange juice is available at three Control Points on the route and at the finish, where other food and drink will be on Sale. St John Ambulance will be on hand along the way just in case there is a need for first aid and RAYNET will provide a radio communication network to meet any emergency needs. At the finish buses will be available which, for a small charge, will transport you back to Seacombe Ferry or to West Kirby railway station.

So dust off those walking shoes and invite, enroll, persuade, cajole, threaten or blackmail family and friends into joining you for a great day out whilst raising money for your favourite charity or ‘good cause’.
