The event

The Coast to Coast trail takes you from Whitehaven in Cumbria, to Tynemouth in Tyne and Wear on the East Coast. Walk or cycle this signed route, and pass through the Lake District, Alston Moor, Newcastle and Gateshead, and much more.

By taking part on behalf of Link Ethiopia, you will help us to continue our work in changing lives through education. With the money you raise you will help to empower teachers, improve schools and ensure that all children can get a good education.

We will also support you with any help or resources you might need, to get you on the right foot with fundraising. Please fill out the contact form on this page if you have any questions.


How much does it cost to take part?

The Coast to Coast can be undertaken as a self-organised tour, so there are no registration costs or anything like that.
Of course you will need to factor in the costs of accommodation or camping equipment, food and drink, and bike maintenance and spare parts.

What support will I receive?

Take on the Coast to Coast challenge for Link Ethiopia and receive a free fundraising kit and support, motivation with your training, and a place in our Hall of Fame!
The funds your raise will support Link Ethiopia and help us to continue changing lives through education!

When and where does the event take place?

The Coast to Coast trail normally takes you from Whitehaven on the West coast to Tynemouth in the East. However there are a number of different routes available to suit all needs.
You can find out detailed information about the route here.

How much should I fundraise?

The Coast to Coast challenge is an impressive feat to undertake, and so we recommend a fundraising target of around £450.
Of course this is only a guideline, and any amount you raise will help us to change lives in Ethiopia.
