THE deadline is looming for people to enter this year’s Scalby Walk.

The 53rd Scalby Walk takes place on Easter Monday and will take its usual format, with the first walkers to set off at 10.30am.

Entry forms can be obtained from the Nags Head pub in High Street or from the Scarborough YMCA reception, and must be returned by 10.30pm on Good Friday, although late entries will be accepted on Easter Monday from 9.30am.

Each year the walk raises cash for a charity or organisation with this year’s proceeds going to the YMCA in St Thomas Street.

Last year £1,750 was presented to St Catherine’s Hospice.

Walkers will start from the Nags Head before proceeding to the Three Jolly sailors, then the Red Lion at Cloughton and then turn back and stop at the Blacksmiths Arms, Cloughton, along the coast road to the Oak Wheel, Burniston, and back to the Nags Head.

The route is about seven-miles long and participants must drink a half pint of beer or a soft drink at each pub. Entry is £10 for adults and £5 for walkers aged from 14 to 17.

There are trophies to be won for both men and women, resident and non-resident and best fancy dress.

The presentation of prizes will be held at the Nags Head on the Monday evening.

There will also be a raffle with a £100 first prize.
