Join us for beautiful pictures of the UK, Stories, blogs and more this year as we cross the UK from Coast to Coast.

The Crossroads community is a bit special to me.  They helped me transform my life in 2009 when I found the courage to leave an unfulfilling corporate career and start my own business .  Since then I've seen hundreds of people find new energy and purpose for the journey ahead of them.  People often come to a retreat in real crisis; relationship breakdown, grief, depression, pain and leave feeling unburdened and ready.

It seems apt therefore to use this metaphor of life's journey for a long distance challenge that spotlights Crossroads and the amazing work they do.

Every penny I raise will go to help people experience a life changing retreat who would otherwise be unable to afford it.  Taking time out from "the pressure cooker" of the outside world is often what people desperately need in order to make good decisions that will meaningfully impact their lives.

7 Marathons in 7 Days

In September 2016, Chris our Director and a group of intrepid Crossroads fundraisers will be completing Wainwright's coast to coast walk in just 7 days. Crossing the Lake District and the North Yorkshire Moors is no mean feat as you can see from the route opposite. Each day will be a marathon or more in length.
