Children

The Twilight Walk is a great event for the whole family to take part in. We offer an under-16 concession for our younger walkers.

There are a few safety point to consider ahead of the event:

  • Under 16s are not permitted to take part in the walk without an accompanying adult.
  • Please check that mobiles phones are fully charged and that they have the correct contact details they need to get hold of you.
  • There will be hundreds of walkers all wearing similar clothing. 
    Therefore, it is essential that children should be accompanied at all times by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.
  • Collect one of our wristbands to write your contact number on for younger walkers. These are available from our team on the night by the entrance, at registration, and at various points around the track.

COVID-19

Our event will comply with all current government COVID-19 restrictions.

There may be some people taking part in our walk, living with life limiting illness so it is important that we take some additional measures:

  • If you have a cough, high temperature or other COVID-19 symptoms, you must not attend. Similarly, you should not attend if you have had any of these symptoms within the previous 14 days.
  • Hand sanitisers will be available around for your use. You may want to consider bringing your own for when you are out on the route.
  • Anti-bacterial wipes will be available for use on our Selfie Station for you to wipe down the props.
  • Our event takes place outdoors. We have one well ventilated marquee area for T-shirt collections and on the night registration.
  • You can register using cash, but where possible we would prefer you to pay using cards.
  • To protect vulnerable participants, we politely ask you to consider wearing face masks in crowded areas, including the start line.
  • There will be reminders dotted around about giving each other the space.

Marshalls

Marshalls play a very important role during the Twilight Walk and can help you and your group in a number of different ways:

  • Marshals will be visible throughout the night and along various points of the route.

  • They will be stationed at major crossing points.

  • They are a safe location for young people or lost team members to wait for you to find them.  Our marshals will call us and we will be able to update you on their location.

  •  

    Please go directly to the nearest Marshall if you encounter any issues, problems, or emergencies.
