A dedicated couple are trekking the British coastline for charity.

Antony and Sally Brown, both 59, are raising funds for a number of charities, including parkrun.

Last Saturday, the pair dropped in to run the North Walsham parkrun.

The Browns are part of the 250,000 weekly parkrunners who participate in this communal event every week.

Upon completing the North Walsham course, they said: "North Walsham was great fun with a super friendly core team on hand to support all of the parkrunners."

They commenced their coastal journey from Bude, Cornwall, on May 15, 2023.

The couple shared their experiences saying: "Walking the coast of Britain has been an amazing experience so far.

"It isn't just the places you see, it's the people along the way that help to make the journey so special and without the acts of kindness that we've received from complete strangers there is no way that we could have got this far."

With their anticipated completion date in three months' time - still more than 1,500 miles away, there are several milestones to look forward to, including Antony's 250th parkrun at Margate on March 23.

The Browns added: "The final three weeks will be around our new home county of Cornwall, it will be on familiar ground and we hope to make it our lap of honour as we celebrate the conclusion of an amazing 12 months of hiking."

The couple have been attending a parkrun every Saturday morning, where possible, and have joined 33 events so far with 31 different venues.

Their goal is to raise £5,000 for parkrun and other charities, with them explaining: "It would be wonderful to see a new parkrun in Cornwall, and it would be lovely to think that our walk helped in some way towards establishing a new event somewhere."

The trek is hoped to conclude on May 22, just a day before Sally's 60th birthday.
