Join us for 2024
Get your walking shoes ready and join us for this special event to set the city aglow in memory of your loved ones. We are so excited that we have a brand new venue this year and we can’t wait to see you there.
Join hundreds of walkers who come together, alongside their friends, families and colleagues, to raise money for hospice care in Cambridgeshire.
You can choose from the more challenging 10-mile route, or the slightly easier 5-miler.
As you meander through the beautiful streets of Cambridge, you’ll know that every step you take will be helping support someone going through a tough time.
Where and when is the walk?
Details coming soon!
How long is the route and is there a shorter option?
The 10-mile ‘challenge’ route will take you on a beautiful riverside walk before you find yourself winding through the amazing quirky streets of Cambridge. You’ll be sure to see some of the iconic landmarks that Cambridge has to offer!
The shorter 5 mile route will take in much of the stunning riverside walk, along with a more localised route outside Cambridge . The two walks will, however, start and end along the same route.
How much does it cost?
In 2023 the entry fees were £17.50 per adult and £9.50 per child.
Can children take part?
Yes, absolutely! Children between 10 – 15 years of age are welcome to register alongside a paying adult.
Will there be food and drink available?
As part of your entry fee you will receive a warm drink and biscuits upon your return to the football club.
What's the dress code?
There’s no dress code, we simply recommend wearing whatever you find comfortable to walk in. Each participant will receive their very own Star Shine t-shirt on the night and we very much encourage anything bright and wacky that will help set the City aglow!
The walk will go ahead come rain or shine, so do keep an eye on the forecast in the lead up to the event and come weather ready!
How much is being raised?
We always like to set a challenge to ourselves, so this year we have a very ambitious target of £50,000. With your help, we are sure that we can smash that goal and make a huge difference to the lives of so many cared for by the Charity!
How many people will be taking part?
We’d love to see 500 participants setting the city aglow this year, so sign up now to be one of them!
How can I volunteer on the day instead of walking?
All volunteers are enormously appreciated and help us to make the evening a success. Please get in contact with the Fundraising Team by emailing email@example.com or telephone 01223 675888 if you’d like to lend a hand.
Can I bring my dog?
You absolutely can! We welcome all well-behaved four legged friends on a lead who wish to join the walk with their owners! Dogs must remain outside at all times and please do make sure you pick up any toileting they do on route.
Do I have to fundraise?
We know it can sometimes be a bit daunting asking others for sponsorship and therefore fundraising is not compulsory, but is certainly encouraged. Any funds that you do raise will go towards helping someone going through a very tough time in their life.
What if I can't walk 10 miles?
We hope that you’ll be able to take part in either the 10 or 5-mile route, however, if you feel that those are unmanageable distances at this time and still want to be there on the night to show your support, then get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer to help out and marshal!
* When does the 20% discount end?
The 20% discount will end on Sunday 14 April 2024 – so book your place now, before you forget!
Is there parking at the event?
Details coming soon!
Is there someone to buddy with if I come on my own?
Yes, please let one of the team know on the night and we will match you with someone else.
