Star Shine Night Walk returns to the streets of Cambridge on Saturday 21 May as an in-person event! Join us from 7pm at Cambridge Rugby Football Club, Volac Park, Grantchester Road before setting out on the 10km walk at 8pm.

Gathering walkers of all abilities, backgrounds and life stages, we’ll make the city streets glow green to raise funds in memory of loved ones on the specially designed route. We’ll take in some of Cambridge’s most iconic views and beautiful green spaces as twilight settles around us, cheered on by a host of volunteer marshals looking out for us along the way. 

Alongside the in-person event, a virtual option is available if you’d prefer to go at your own pace in a more convenient place. As a virtual participant, you can choose the time, location and method to suit you, and you’ll receive the same event pack. Sign up here for the in-person event or the virtual option!

Walk in support of your local hospice, in memory of a loved one, with hundreds of others who are doing the same. Walk as an individual, or walk as a group of friends or colleagues. This year we’re aiming for a record number of walkers, so sign up, spread the word and join in!

On the Night

Please arrive on site at CRUFC, Volac Park, Grantchester Road from 7pm to sign in, warm up, enjoy music, and maybe get a selfie with our special guest

Ask all walkers to return to the rugby club at the end, to collect their well deserved medals, get a drink and a snack and sign out

Toilet facilities available at the rugby club, as well as 3 pubs en-route (The Granta, Fort St George, The Mitre)

We’ll be kept safe by PPP First Aid and RAYNET radio communications on the route, assisting our volunteer marshals

Please be aware that we aren’t operating a bag-drop

Dogs can join, please keep them on a lead at the rugby club

We have strived to make the route as accessible as possible, please use dropped kerbs and if in need of assistance, ask our friendly marshals for guidance

Wherever possible, please share lifts with others attending, or cycle to the rugby club. We can offer parking at the rugby club, please follow the instructions of our marshals. We will also be operating a drop-off if you are able to be dropped off, and then picked up at the end of the event
