Published on: Aug. 10, 2016, 12:52 p.m.

The South West Coast Path Association and the National Trust, their charity partner, have created a 2016 Challenge event, covering the whole month of October. They are looking for people to collectively stomp over 10,000 miles to raise thousands of pounds in sponsorship - so far over 3,500 miles have been pledged by 260 walkers! It costs at least £1,000 to maintain just 1 mile of Coast Path and an additional £2,000 for the National Trust to take care of the countryside that surrounds it, so every mile pledged this autumn will really count.
