The First Light Walk is our newest sponsored walk from Kessingland along the beach and back to South Pier Lowestoft.

As part of the First Light Festival, walkers will start their five mile walk to tie in with the first light of the sun at 4.30am! The sunrise walk will be raising money for St Elizabeth East Coast Hospice, who provide care and support for patients and families living with life-limiting illness.

The walk is for men, women and children 10 years and over.

Registration will be at South Pier, Lowestoft and then we will provide coach transfers to the starting point in Kesslingland. Entrants must be 10 years of age or over on day of registration.

Any walker under the age of 18 must include the name and authorisation of the parent/guardian who will be accompanying them on the walk on their registration form.
