Sunday 4th September 2022 saw the Coastal Path Charity walk take place again - a popular event that was just not possible in 2020 or 2021. The weather though was not so good for early starters, with the glorious coastal scenery of the East Neuk of Fife obscured by low cloud. The afternoon was better and, most importantly, although fewer in number this year, walkers said how great it was to be out again. Those who have taken part will know that money raised is donated to registered charities – and each walker decides which charities to support. Those benefitting in 2022 are listed at the bottom of the page.
In 2022 a total of £6,368 was raised and since 2010, when the Walk started, a remarkable £134,152 has been raised for many, many local, national and international charities.
'Each year people taking part in the walk tell us how much they enjoyed the day and that they would definitely like to do it again. And each year it is a real pleasure to meet our friends from previous years, as well as new faces too'.
The walk starts and finishes in picturesque Crail, where ample off-road parking is provided and there is free coach transport to starting points of Earlsferry or Anstruther. You have the choice of 6 or 13 miles along a well-signposted route with manned checkpoints
A warm welcome, refreshments and a commemorative certificate and medal await at the finish.

Started in 2010, that first year raised £8,000 and altogether the total raised now stands at £134,152 - and for many, many different charities. It is a wonderful tribute to everyone who takes part and to their supporters as well.
