Now in its eleventh year, the Byron Coastal Charity Walk gets people moving 12, 24 or 36km down the Byron Coast. Enjoy picturesque beaches and walking tracks from Byron to Ballina whilst raising funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
As a social, non-competitive walk, participants can walk or run at any pace and choose to enter individually or in teams. The event is fully supported with snacks, marshals on track, medical assistance and lots of great entertainment.
