Follow the Seagulls is a long distance, charity trek to help people beat brain cancer. It’s your chance to do something truly incredible that matches your passion to help the 60,000 people in the UK who are afraid and alone because of their brain tumour diagnosis. The walks take place annually on the Isle of Wight, Whitby in North Yorkshire, the Fife Coastal Path in Scotland and Dartmouth in Devon. Join our community to raise funds and awareness as we take on 50 miles, in four locations, over two days, by foot.
DARTMOUTH, SOUTH DEVON: With lighthouses; lost villages; tranquil estuaries; rugged cliffs; beaches and stunning coastal views. This challenge, starting in Dartmouth has it all and will take you along one of the most spectacular coastlines in England, the South West Coastal Path.
We get together for the start on both days in Dartmouth and meet up at various points over the weekend, but you will step into the role of navigator on this self-supported walk. There’ll be trails to stick to, and fellow walkers to join up with, but you’ll have to consult your maps which will be annotated and provided to navigate your way around. Whether you choose to walk alone or as part of a group, we will ensure you have an amazing experience!
“For someone considering this challenge in the future I’d say absolutely do it. Not only was it an epic physical and mental challenge, it was also one of the most humbling and rewarding adventures I’ve been on. It was an incredible achievement and opportunity to truly see the best in people; sharing stories, support and collective goals. As the aches begin to fade, my gratitude for this amazing charity, and the people it has connected me with, just grows stronger and stronger.” – Sammy (2019)
