Make 2019 unforgettable

Hello Coast Pathers. There’s no better place to make memories than on the South West Coast Path. If the Coast Path is going to feature in your 2019, why not build a fundraising element into your plans, and help us ensure the trail is always there when you need to escape?


Whether you’re looking for a physical challenge, want to conquer a fear, set a record, go on an epic adventure or celebrate a milestone birthday – the Coast Path has it all. Here some inspiration for making 2019 truly unforgettable:

Multi-day hike challenge

Get back to basics and enjoy the wildness and freedom of the Path by extending your coastal walking from an afternoon to a whole weekend. Can you survive with just a tent and backpack?

Start planning.

Marathon on the trails

Coast Path climbs make road marathons look easy! They say running your first marathon or half marathon is something you never forget, will this be your year?

Find a Coast Path marathon.

Bring your community together

How about organising a community fundraising walk on the trail this year? An anti-dote to the division we keep hearing about in the media!

Do something wacky

From coasteering and caving, to kayaking and open-water swimming, there are plenty of ways to break out of your comfort zone along the Path!

Somerset watersports
Devon watersports
Cornwall waterports
Dorset watersports.


You can easily make any of these activities into a fundraiser for the trail you love. Simply by asking friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you a few pounds each, or donate to join in with your plans, you will be surprised how your fundraising adds up.

Remember, any amount raised for the Association, small or large, makes a difference to our work protecting and championing the trail. As little as £25 for example could buy and install a new oak step – there are 20,000 of these alone along the 630-mile Path!



We are here to help:

  • If you need any support with turning an adventure into a fundraiser please contact our Fundraising Manager Genevieve.
  • Set up a online giving page for your fundraising here.
  • If you have your year planned out already – let us know! Make a #CoastPathPledge for 2019 and be in with a chance of winning an luxury break in Cornwall.

Here is to an awesome 2019! Thanks for supporting the trail,

The South West Coast Path Team
