Calling all walking enthusiasts! Action Cancer’s 2015 Giant’s Walk will take place on Saturday, September 5, and is now open to entries online.

The picturesque Giant’s Walk, which is now in its 11th year, follows a stunning route along the Causeway coastal paths. It 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 walk will start at 10am on September 5 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.

The money raised from the walk will help Action Cancer to save lives and support people affected by cancer in Northern Ireland.
