Come and join us for A Walk to Remember. Taking place on Saturday 22 June, this family-friendly event offers two routes, the Big Yin at a slightly more challenging 13.5 miles and the Wee Yin at 5.5 miles. This year we will be using our East Lothian route!

Online registrations for The Walk to Remember are now closed.  You can still take part in the walk by registering on the day. 

For the Big Yin, registration starts at 8:15am, from The Porty Wash House/Portobello Community Centre,  3 Adelphi Grove, Edinburgh EH15 1PA, for a 9am departure.

For the Wee Yin from Cockenzie House and Gardens, 22 Edinburgh Rd, Cockenzie, Prestonpans EH32 0HY, at 10am, for a 10.30am departure.

The Big Yin starts at Portobello before heading along the front passed Fisherrow Harbour and along Musselburgh Promenade. The route then crosses the River Esk and goes around Musselburgh Lagoons, hugging the coastline to Prestonpans. Once through Prestonpans, the route re-joins the coastal path and heads around the site of the old Cockenzie Power Station before coming into Cockenzie itself and going through the beautiful  gardens of Cockenzie House.

The Wee Yin starts at Cockenzie House and joins participants from the big walk. We all then head out of Cockenzie and Port Seton, once again hugging the coastline as it winds through Seton Sands and Longniddry Bents. The route passes in front of Gosforth House before turning inland for the final stretch along woodland paths to Aberlady.

Along the route of the Wee Yin there will be fun activities for children (and any young at heart adults!) including a nature quest, face painting, a selfie frame so you can pose for pics, and at the end you will be rewarded with refreshments, ice cream, cakes as well as goodie bags for children in addition to a t-shirt and medal.
