The Sunderland BIG Walk is a wonderful way to spend time with your family and friends while taking in some of the best scenery the city has to offer.

The registration form is available to download by clicking on 'Book event' above.

You can also pick up a registration form from any of the city's sport and leisure facilities.

The BIG Walk 2014 starts from the National Glass Centre.

The 6.5 mile walk finishes at the Washington Wetlands Centre.

The 11.5mile walk finishes at Herrington Country Park.

Over 350 people took part in last year's BIG Walk and we hope many more will join this year.

You could be sponsored to do the BIG Walk and raise money for the Mayor's charities, your favourite charity, sports club or community group.

This year the BIG walk is supporting the Mayor's charities: AgeUK Sunderland, North East NSPCC (Childline Schools Service, Sunderland) and Action on Dementia - Sunderland and for every entry, £1 will be donated to the Mayor's charities.

After the BIG Walk

All walkers will receive a medal and a goody bag upon completion of the BIG Walk and a shuttle bus will return you to the National Glass Centre.
