Midnight Beach Walk


Back by popular demand, Weston Hospicecare’s Midnight Beach Walk is a women’s-only 5K sponsored walk along the beach in Weston-super-Mare.

Join us (in celebration or reflection) as we celebrate loved ones or people who have touched our lives. Whether you’re walking in memory of a loved one or just out to enjoy a nice walk along the beach with friends (while raising some much-needed funds for the hospice), you’ll have a brilliant time at the Midnight Beach Walk.

Once registration opens at 10:30 p.m., we invite you to come down, sign in and collect your special ‘Midnight Beach Walk’ T-shirt, and enjoy the music and atmosphere. We’ll have a special warm-up session followed by a moment of reflection, and then we’ll set off at midnight from the Tropicana before heading up towards Knightstone Island then back past the Grand Pier down to Royal Sands before finishing back at the Tropicana. We’ll welcome you back with a small finisher’s gift upon course completion.

We will have some sparkly, glowy merchandise available to purchase on the night. If you choose to do so, you can also make a small donation to go toward the cost of a candle bag that you can personalise with an in-memory message.

The event is only open to women and girls, age 11 and up, but we are also planning a fantastic men-only walking event for next year. However, men can support the Midnight Beach Walk as volunteers, so please do get in touch if this is of any interest (01934 423 900 or volunteering@westonhospicecare.org.uk).

Registration cost: £15 for adults, £10 for 11-15 year olds

The registration fee only covers event costs, a ‘Midnight Beach Walk’ T-shirt, the warm-up event and the special gift given at course completion. In order for the event to be a success, we rely on you to raise sponsorship or make an additional donation.

Please note that registration closes at midnight on Saturday, 3rd September 2016. We might have a limited number of places left, but if you sign up on or after Sunday, 4th September 2016, the registration fee will be £30 for adults and £20 for young people.
