The 2019 Walk took place
SUNDAY 12th MAY
The walk is organised each year by the Rotary Club of Anstruther and East Neuk to raise money for good causes. Since it started, the coastal walk has raised a brilliant total of £116,529 - a sum that will be added to once monies from the 2019 event are added in (£10,980 at the start of July - with more to come). A total of 22 charities benefitted last year and these are listed at the bottom of the page.
As always the walk is a great day out for individuals, groups or families. There are spectacular views across the Forth to the Bass Rock, May Isle and the Lothians. It is a great way to have a superb day out and raise lots of money for your chosen charity. The 2019 event enjoyed brilliant weather - Just over 100 walkers took part with spirits lifted by the warm sunny day and following breeze.
'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.
Captured below are some images from the last few of years.
Started in 2010, that first year raised £8,000 and we have seen subsequent years do even better as the event has become better known (although it must be said that the weather has had an effect too!)
Altogether the total raised since the event started now stands at £116,529 - and for many, many different charities. It is a wonderful tribute to everyone who takes part and to their supporters as well.
