The free 10K family walk along the beautiful North Tyneside coastline is back for 2022!

The scenic family walk will take place on the Saturday of the next Bank Holiday weekend (27 August).

You can sign up to spend some time strolling in the sunshine from The Parks Sports Centre in North Shields to St Mary’s Lighthouse in Whitley Bay from Monday 27 June here.

The event begins at 10.30am and participants will work their way along the Fish Quay, the River Tyne, past Tynemouth Priory and Castle, along a stretch of coastline and the Spanish City Dome to the finish line.

The six mile route will be fully marshalled along the way making is a perfect event for the whole family to get involved in and get moving. The walk can be done at a leisurely or brisk pace, to suit your ability or your mood!

This year the event is plastic/waste free and participants are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle with them to fill up at the water fountains along the route. A map of where water fountains are located can be found here.

While the event is free, donations will be welcome on the day and will go towards supporting The Fishermen’s Mission in North Shields.

The walk will be finished by 2pm and a free transport will be available to take participants back to The Parks.
