Read all about Tom, Claire and Adam's coast to coast fundraiser:

In July 2019, we embarked on the Wainwright Coast to Coast challenge. This involved us hiking 192 miles between St Bees on the West Coast and Robin Hood Bay on the East Coast, covering three national parks across the breadth of England. To add to our challenge, we carried all our belongings in back packs weighing 70kg and camped along the way, allowing us to be truly at one with nature.

The first part of our walk took us through the stunning Lake District, traversing the sides of the deserted and calm Ennerdale water before climbing up into the famous peaks and ‘Wainwrights’. Two more days followed of navigating down fells, around lakes and on occasion reaching some of the busier picture postcard locations. Beyond the Lake District, our journey took us into the majesty of the Yorkshire Dales where we experienced, our only but nonetheless unwelcome, day of solid rain. This set the stage perfectly for the obligatory Coast to Coast soggy boots and inevitable blisters that followed, which frustratingly tagged along with us for the rest of our trip!

However, the weather did pick up and boots dried as we emerged into Richmond, a market town with the charm and character to pick up the spirits of even the weariest of travellers that carried us into the last section.  A brief stopover in the village of Danby Wiske accompanied by the entertainment of Morris dancers and pub folk singers followed, before the North York Moors opened up ahead.

It was at this point, as we neared the end of the journey and Robin Hoods Bay drew into sight, that we began to reflect on the countryside over which we had passed and had been our home for the last 10 days. The work that The Prince’s Countryside Fund does to help those who make it their home and who are also preserving this great landscape for future generations to enjoy became even more apparent to us and reiterated just why we were raising money for such a worthwhile cause.

We can’t think of a better way to spend 10 days and would encourage anyone else to take the plunge and try it too – better still, raise money for a great cause along the way to make it even more special.

Happy Walking!
