What days is the challenge running on?
The Walk Your Way challenge will start on Saturday 3rd October until Saturday 10th October, so you can choose the best date (and with the best weather forecast!) for you from that week. Or, if you’d prefer to walk another date that’s absolutely fine too.
What time should I start the walk?
Rather than walking through the night by yourself, this year we are challenging you to start your walk at sunrise or finish it at sunset so that you’re still seeing your local area in a different light. In October, this will roughly be at 7am and 6.30pm – but if you’d rather walk at another time of day that’s completely up to you!
What’s in the event pack?
Before the event week, we’ll post you this year’s Walk Your Way t-shirt, some glitter, and a new finishline prize too!
What do I do after I’ve completed the walk?
Take a triumphant selfie at the finishline and make sure to share it on our Facebook event page, we’d love to see your photos from the walk! Send us a message to let us know how it went, and update your JustGiving page to let your supporters know that you’ve completed the challenge. Keep your t-shirt as a momento of the walk and use your finishing prize with pride.
I signed up before the event was changed, can I get a refund?
We would love to see as many people as possible taking part in the Walk Your Way challenge across Bristol and beyond! While our normal fundraising activities are on hold, the funds raised from the challenge will make such a difference. However if you’re not able to walk with us this year, you can also defer to 2021’s event, or if you’d prefer to cancel we can either refund your entry fee or change it to a donation.
Get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you’d like to do.
What is the minimum age?
There is no minimum age for taking part in this event, but all under 18’s must be accompanied by a participating adult who is responsible for their safety.
Can men take part too?
Yes absolutely! This challenge is open for everyone to take part in.
Can I walk with my dog?
Of course! This challenge is for you to complete in any way that you’d like, so you can choose a route that you can bring your four legged friend along with you for.
Can I walk with other people?
You are more than welcome to walk with friends, family and colleagues as long as you are following all local guidance on how many people and households can meet to exercise outdoors. Make sure to keep a distance of at least 2m between yourself and anyone outside of your household, and check the government website for updated guidance.
