Entries open for Coast to Coast Walk


The fifth annual ‘Sight Matters Coast to Coast Walk’ is set to return this September, with Conister Bank as its headline sponsor.

The popular event will take place on Sunday 4th September when participants walk from Douglas to Peel, clocking up approximately 12 miles. Walkers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to sign up for the reasonably flat and gentle route. The event will start with a lap of the NSC track, before heading west via the Heritage Trail and crossing the finish line in Peel.

Coast to Coast participants will help Sight Matters raise funds that will provide much-needed support to the Island’s blind and visually impaired community.

The full-distance walk will begin at 1.30pm with check-in from noon at the outdoor pitches reception at the NSC. For those who wish to participate over a shorter distance, there’s an alternative start at St John’s. Check-in for the shorter, three-mile route will open from 2.45pm at the car park by St John’s School, with walkers expected to set off at 3.30pm.

Debbie Thomson, Volunteer Coordinator & Events Organiser at Sight Matters, said: ‘We’re really excited to be launching the Coast to Coast walk for the fifth year running. In 2021, 450 participants registered to take part, and over £8,000 was raised for Sight Matters. That’s an incredible amount of money, and we’re keen to raise a similar amount from the 2022 event.

‘We’re thrilled to welcome Conister Bank as our event sponsor. The Conister team are great to work with, and their support has been invaluable. The September sunshine certainly encouraged walkers of all ages making their way to the Peel finish line last year, and we’re hoping conditions will be the same as walkers line up for the 2022 start.
