Cross Bay Walk Challenge

Cross Bay Walk Challenge 2019

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!

The eight-mile sponsored walk from Arnside to Grange-over-Sands will be led by specialist guide Michael Wilson on the afternoon of Sunday 28 July 2019.

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.
