Ever wanted to walk across Morecambe Bay - I mean actually walking out into the bay, across the sand and almost out to sea?

Sounds mad doesn’t it. But it’s possible, under the watchful eye of Michael Wilson, the official Kings Guide to the Sands. A role dating back to 1548 would you believe. 

We will be walking from Arnside across to Grange over Sands with about 5-600 other people as part of Save Grange Lido’s fundraiser.   This is a fantastic local project aiming to restore and reopen the lido on the promenade. So all monies raised from the entry and other sponsorship will go to the charitable trust managing the restoration and not OutdoorLads (just for clarity). 

The actual length of the walk varies from 8 miles depending on the route  Michael takes on the day through the channels (and around any quicksand obviously - which is why he's the King’s guide!).

During the walk we will start on dry land and then after a couple of miles we head out onto the sandbanks - at this point you are welcome to take your shoes off if you wish. It’s a lovely feeling. After an hour or so we will cross the River Kent which runs in the middle of the channel - this is all very well controlled and the water usually gets up to your knees on a good day so shorts are a wise idea.  

Now you don’t need to do sponsorship if you don’t want to, you just pay the entry fee of £15 per person and you are welcome to raise more if you wish but that’s entirely optional.
