Join in on the East Yorkshire Coast

Join in – Take part in activities on the East Yorkshire coast

The East Yorkshire coast provides the perfect location to get active and enjoy the great outdoors. With a whole host of activities for residents and visitors to take part in, why not join in and get involved in the Active Coast Programme

Launching April 2017, The Easter Programme will kick off the Active Coast initiative by providing a range of activities and events for all ages, every day, from Saturday 8th to Friday 14th April with the showcase ‘Have a Field Day’ taking place on Sewerby Fields on Wednesday 12th April.

A main feature of Active Coast will be the exciting Beach Sports programme which includes a vibrant beach volleyball scene with four semi-permanent Go Spike courts free to use. Why not also join in the weekly coaching sessions which will take place every week in the school holidays. So check out what’s on and hit the beach!

If running, walking or cycling is your thing then head to Sewerby parkrun for a 5k challenge every Saturday or meet up for a health walk. Our adapted cycling scheme All Ride will also be up and running from April to September offering scenic rides along the North Promenade for people with additional needs.

Summer 2017 will also see the launch of our ‘six weeks of summer’ programme, providing activities every day for all ages. Look out for the Beach Sports Festival, ‘Have a Beach & Play Days’, Bossaball and the Volleyball England Beach Tour.

With so much happening in 2017, it’s easy to see why the East Yorkshire coast is a fantastic place to live, visit and be active.
