Wales Balloon Walk
Join the Balloon Walk and be part of a community taking on events all around the country for one common goal: beating blood cancer.
This is a varied 5-mile coastal walk which starts and finishes at Cliff Parade in Penarth. The route offers far-reaching views across the Bristol Channel to the islands of Steep Holm and Flat Holm (and its lighthouse which dates back to 1737). Brean Down and the hills along the Devon coast are also visible in clear weather.
You’ll be given one of our coloured balloons to carry so you can proudly show your support – and you’ll have the chance to share experiences and memories along the way, before enjoying some well-deserved refreshments.
The fairly flat route is suitable for all ages. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear: some of the route could be muddy.
Please note that all balloons used on our balloon walk will be biodegradable, will not be filled with helium and will not be released after the event. All walkers have the option to walk with or without a balloon.
