Once again, the Lions Club of Looe are holding the Coast and Cove event and for 2019 have arranged a challenge for every ability. New for 2019 there will be a half marathon. No matter what your walking experience they have a challenge specifically aimed at you.
Sponsored Walks as follows:
- 10 mile circular east of Looe route
- 25 mile circular east of Looe route
- Festival Walk to Polperro (5 miles or 10 miles if you walk back)
- Family Fun Day to Polperro (5 miles)

Walking Challenge – Walkers can walk one route (on Saturday or Sunday) or two routes (one on Saturday and one on Sunday). The entrance fee is £15 per person for one days and £25 if entering both days.
Half Marathon – The longer of the two Sunday routes has been designed to be a half marathon and support will be given to entrants wishing to run the route. The entrance fee is £15 per person.
The Family Day/Festival Walk – £10 per family group – for Sunday morning Looe to Polperro walk. Ratio of at least one adult for every two children. You can either walk from Looe to Polperro and back (approx. 10 miles) or just walk from Looe to Polperro (approx. 5 miles), take in the festival atmosphere and get a boat, bus or taxi back. The family fun day includes a treasure hunt. The entry fee for individuals is £5.
The Armchair Challenge – If you can’t make the dates or don’t feel up to doing one of the walking challenges, but would like to support the cause, we would welcome any donation. Please Donate Here
In addition to having a great time on this beautiful coastline, we are raising money for the Cornwall Air Ambulance which is a life saver for those who live and visit Cornwall. There is no minimum level of sponsorship, but we would be very grateful if individuals/teams could raise what they can for this worthy cause.
