year's 15-mile Brean Challenge will start at 11am in Burnham and
organisers expect it to take around 4-5 hours.

target of £10,000 for the Alzheimers Society over
the next 18 months. He is also planning to complete a high altitude
trek to Everest base camp in October 2010.
beach walks have been very enjoyable with a relaxed atmosphere
and a good mix of people of all ages and abilities," Mike
is welcome - including sponsored dogs - and it's a great opportunity
to enjoy parts of our beach that you may not have seen before."
from enjoying the exercise and the company of others, the main
purpose is to beat last year's total of £2,100."

entrance to Berrow Beach and return of 7.5 miles.
