Join Monty Halls to become an adventurer and win a GoPro camera

Fancy a challenge? Join Monty Halls for an adventure as part of the South West Coast Path Challenge this October and make a pledge on social media for a chance to win a Go Pro Hero4 camera - the ultimate tool for recording your adventures.

As Patron of the month-long fundraising event, TV adventurer Monty Halls has created a video blog that sets out his challenge and nominates three friends to join him.

Monty says:

“Some of my happiest memories have been out running or walking the South West Coast Path, which snakes right past my house in Dartmouth.

“As part of the South West Coast Path Challenge month, I’m going to sea kayak to Scabbacombe and run back to Dartmouth, which is 5 miles up and down steep coastline so it’s going to be tough.”

The South West Coast Path Association is leading on the event alongside the National Trust with the aim to raise vital funds for improvements on the Coast Path. It costs at least £1,000 to look after just 1-mile of Coast Path and it needs your help.

Both charities are encouraging the millions of people that visit the coast every year, to challenge their friends and families to take part and share their experience on social media by tagging their posts with #Challenge630.

Posts can include simple words, pictures or video and as long as it contains the hashtag, it will be in with a chance to win the prize of a Go Pro camera at the end of the month of October. The more creative the post the better the chances of winning and this can be on Twitter, Facebook or Youtube, with the winner chosen by Monty.

Entries could include a selfie beside a beautiful view, footprints in the sand or a simple pair of boot clad feet, anything that represents people enjoying the Coast Path's access to the sea and reinforcing the idea of the old adage; ‘take only pictures, leave only footprints…’
