About The Walk

The Rotary Club of North Wirral organised the first Wirral Coastal Walk in 1986 From the humble beginnings of a few hundred walkers, it has grown to become a well-known annual event in the Wirral calendar and probably the biggest of its kind in the North West. In 2017 an estimated 2500 walkers took part raising much needed funds for their chosen charities and good causes.
 
The Walk follows the Wirral coastline from Seacombe Ferry on the River Mersey to Wirral Country Park Visitor Centre at Thurstaston, a distance of 15 miles. For more details of the route see our page titled 'The Route' or click here.
 
It is a fun event for walkers of all ages and abilities. Its main attraction, apart from the exercise and the opportunity to view the beautiful Wirral coastline, is that Walkers can raise money through sponsorship for the charity or ‘good cause’ of their own choosing. For many local organisations and charities, the Walk has become a significant event in their money-raising calendar.
 
Every aspect of the event is organised and controlled by the Rotary Club of North Wirral. All a walker needs to do is ask/send for (click here) or download (click here) a sponsorship form, obtain some sponsorship, turn up on the day, pay the registration fee and participate.
 
Drinks are not provided en-route and would ask Walkers to note this and provide their own but food and drinks are on sale at the finish. St John Ambulance will be on hand along the way just in case there is a need for first aid. At the finish buses will be available which, for a small donation, will transport you back to Seacombe Ferry or to West Kirby railway station.

So dust off those walking shoes and invite, enroll, persuade, cajole, threaten or blackmail family and friends into joining you for a great day out whilst raising money for your favourite charity or ‘good cause’.
