There are 5 route options including:

  • the succinct 125 km ‘England Coast 2 Coast’ ideal for the occasional walker to get back into their stride,
  • the 500 km ‘Scotland Coast 2 Coast’ for seasoned trekkers and runners braving the cold
  • the full 1400 km ‘Great Britain Coast 2 Coast’ which might suit many on two wheels and perhaps just a few hardened types on two feet with plenty of free time over the next two months!

Choose your challenge and take it anywhere, anytime from throughout Jan and Feb. Log your progress and move across our Virtual Map of Great Britain, sharing your stories online as you head towards the coast.

There are ‘Prize Draws’ for reaching your halfway point by the end of January and a fantastic Across Britain Challenge medal & neck buff for everyone who crossed their coastal finish line by 28 February.
