The South West Coast Path plays host to a whole range of exciting events and activities. From community meet ups to long-distance running races – and everything in between, there really is something for everyone.
Couch to Coast
Working in partnership with Active Devon as part of the Connecting Actively to Nature (CAN) programme, we run a project called Couch to Coast. This project aims to get over 55s in Devon more active - as well as build new friendships in the area by connecting people to a world-famous walking trail right on their doorstep. It follows the popular model of ‘Couch to 5k’, but instead of getting people running, we take them from sitting on the sofa to cruising along the Coast Path! Why not see if there’s a group near you?
A picture-perfect path
The South West Coast Path wraps its way around the entire south west region, spanning four counties. It creates a natural corridor for walkers and wildlife alike, so that we can pass through magnificent landscapes and connect to the natural world around us. From craggy rocks and rolling hills to sultry sunsets and crashing waves, mother nature provides a bounty of subject material when it comes to photography – all you need to do is get out there with your camera. We host an annual photography competition that gives you the chance to not only earn the title of South West Coast Path Photographer of the Year, but also take home some fantastic prizes.
Planet Earth Games
We’re proud partners of Planet Earth Games, an initiative that offers whole communities a way to develop active, sustainable lifestyles. Blending human health with the health of the environment, we work together to offer ways for you to benefit your wellbeing whilst also playing an important role in protecting the planet.
Bringing people together
The South West Coast Path isn’t just a walking trail, it is also home to number of amazing celebratory gatherings and annual events. From world-class firework displays, jaw-dropping musical performances, delicious food festivals and some of the most challenging running races around – there’s always something going on.
