Cross Bay Walk Challenge 2017

Walkers on the cross bay walk challenge

Join us on our annual fundraising walk across the iconic Morecambe Bay sands. Come with your family, friends or on your own: everyone is welcome!

Cross Bay Walk Challenge on Saturday 20 May 2017

Humphrey Head Nature Reserve

The eight-mile sponsored walk from Arnside to Grange-over-Sands will be led by the Queen’s Guide to the Sands, Cedric Robinson MBE, on the afternoon of Saturday 20 May 2017.

You'll take in spectacular views of well-known sites such as Humphrey Head and Arnside Knott from the unusual perspective of the sands.

“Not only is the walk across the bay a great day out, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to raise much-needed funds to help protect Cumbria’s wonderful wildlife. Money raised will go directly towards ensuring local wildlife has the best chance.” Andrea Simpson of Cumbria Wildlife Trust
