Fancy a brand new challenge? Team up with family & friends to walk 20km along the stunning coastal path from South Shields down to Whitburn and back - all in aid of Alzheimer's Society.
Before you set off, take a moment to leave a message on the Memory Tree to reflect on those you're walking for. Now time to warm up and go! The route will set off from Bents Park in South Shields and head along the stunning coastal path taking in Souter Lighthouse, Marsden Beach and more before reaching the turnaround point in Whitburn.
You can either register as an individual or team up with friends, family and colleagues. Training, fundraising and walking as part of a team is a great way of sharing the miles and memories with those who matter most.
This Memory Walk Plus event provides a great opportunity to explore South Shields, just 3.7 miles downstream from Newcastle. Once you've completed the 20km walk, why not visit the Tynemouth Priory and Castle, have some fun at the Ocean Beach Pleasure Park or check out Arbeia, a ruined Roman fort.

"I drove a 600-mile round trip to walk a in my mother's home town. A very poignant day. I made new friends and absolutely loved it." - Anne, Memory Walker
