Calling all keen walking enthusiasts - Action Cancer is delighted to launch their 2015 Giant’s Walk due to take place on Saturday, 5th September.

The picturesque Giant’s Walk, which is now in its 11th year, follows a stunning route along the Causeway coastal paths. The walk starts off from the award winning Giant’s Causeway Visitors Centre making its way along the Causeway finishing at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.

The route is just over 10 miles and passes along a fabulous coastal route, walking via landmark sites including the beautiful sandy beach at Whitepark Bay, Dunserverick Harbour and then through Ballintoy Harbour.

There are some challenging pathways, but the breath taking views make it all worthwhile. The half way point at Dunseverick Castle is a welcome site and the perfect picnic spot for a well-deserved lunch break.

The walk will start at 10am on Saturday 05 September with registration open from 9.15am. There will be free car parking facilities at Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (Quarry Car Park) and a bus will transport walkers from there to the beginning of the route at The Giant’s Causeway.

The £12 online registration for The Giant’s Walk is now open and Action Cancer is encouraging participants, where possible, to raise a minimum amount of £80 in sponsorship, the cost of a mammogram to the charity. Everyone who registers will receive a t-shirt and certificate on the day.

For further information on the event and an information pack, including registration form, map and sponsor forms, please email sgraham@actioncancer.org or contact Stacey on 028 9080 3349.
