On the Day

What to expect

This family friendly 5k is for all so please do encourage all friends and family to sign up with you. By attending and taking part you are supporting your local children's hospital and making a difference to the sick kids in our care.

The day will start in our Activity Zone by Boldmere Gate where we will get you warmed up for the walk. You will then be set off in waves on the 5k walk around Sutton park before returning to our Activity Zone where you will find lots of fun activities to take part in.

What to pack

Make sure you're wearing your wristband to gain entry on the day (you will be sent this in the post prior to event day).
Sturdy shoes
You will be walking on a mixture of terrain including woodland paths, grassed areas and uneven ground, so we recommend you wear sturdy shoes.
Weather dependant.
Make sure you keep hydrated on route!
For any extra food and drinks or merchandise you might want to buy at the event (each of our lovely suppliers are giving a donation to the charity).
Waterproof clothing and extra layers
In case it rains, you can never trust the UK weather!

How long will the walk take?

We anticipate the walk for those walking briskly to take around 1 hour. For those walking at a leisurely pace it will take between 1.5 – 2 hours. You are then more than welcome to spend as much time as you like in our Activity Zone. Please note the area will close at 4pm.
