Walk 7 or 14 miles between Clacton and Walton pier in support of St Helena Hospice at the Pier to Pier walk 2020.

About this Event

Join us in sunny Clacton, or Walton, on Sunday 26th April for Pier to Pier 2020.

This ever popular event will see hundreds of local supporters flock to the seaside in support of St Helena Hospice to walk either 7 or 14 miles between Clacton and Walton Pier.

Team up with friends, family or co-workers and take in the sea air as you get your step count up to support local people in need of hospice services. And why not bring your four-legged friends too, as the walk is dog friendly!

This event is for everybody; take on the walk at your own pace and take time to remember your loved one at our memory stop, where you can leave a message to someone special to you.

Our Pier to Pier event is renowned for its fantastic atmosphere as our walkers are always in high spirits - even during the unexpected downpour at last year’s walk – that’s why we see so many returning faces year on year. If you’ve never taken part in the Pier to Pier walk, there’s no better time to get involved.

In order to cover the cost of organising this event, and to provide every participant with a medal, we are charging a registration fee of £5. Children under the age of 5 go free.

The registration fee only covers the costs of running this event, so we ask each participant to raise a minimum of £30 sponsorship to help support local people who face incurable illness and bereavement.

Want to support St Helena Hospice further, and look good while doing so? Why not pick up on of an official Pier to Pier Walk T-shirt to wear on the day!
