UK Coast to Coast challenge – sign up and fundraise for bereaved military children

Starting in the seaside town of Whitehaven, the UK Coast to Coast challenge encompasses some of the best scenery Britain has to offer as you tackle the tough 143-mile ride to Tynemouth. 

From the stunning mountains of the Lake District to the beautiful open moors of the Northern Pennines – all you have to do is hop on your bike and enjoy!  Two coastlines, one objective.

The fully-supported route encompasses some of the best scenery Britain has to offer, as you take in long, steep climbs over some of the highest passes in the Lake District, and some equally impressive descents that will really blow the cobwebs away. All while the challenge leaders take care of the finer details from transporting luggage, providing refreshment stops and meals, to arranging accommodation and meals.

To join Team Scotty and fundraise for bereaved British Forces children and young people at this event please visit the UK Coast to Coast Challenge event site by clicking here. When you register you will be asked which charity you wish to support and will have the opportunity to select Scotty’s Little Soldiers.

Please note that 80% of the minimum sponsorship must be received 10 weeks before departure, as agreed with the event organisers. If not your place may be cancelled.
