Event description

Description

Join us for a fantastic night under the stars on our magical new route at Shuttleworth, remembering loved ones and fundraising for Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice.

This is a night not to be missed!

  • Registration opens: 6.30pm
  • Walk starts: 8.00pm


What happens on the night?

Starting early evening, arrive in time to check-in and enjoy our entertainment area, where you’ll find music, stalls and refreshments available.

After warming up, you’ll follow a safe marshalled route around the enchanting grounds of the Shuttleworth Estate, including a special visit to the Swiss Gardens. From here your walk will take you to the Summer House where you’ll be able to display a star dedicated to your loved one.

Crossing the finishing line, you’ll be rewarded with a well-deserved medal, the opportunity to treat yourself to a hot drink and a snack, plus the knowledge that you’ve done something amazing for local people at the hardest time of their lives.


Encourage your friends and family to join you!

Sign up individually or select 'Team' entry, name your team and then sign up/invite friends, family and colleagues to hike with you! You can have up to ten members per team so don't be shy.

Every penny raised through sponsorship will help us to continue to provide expert end of life care to our patients and offer support to their families at St John’s Hospice and out in the local Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire community.


Entries are open now!





FAQs


I've signed up. What happens now?
Once registered, each entrant will receive an email confirmation with more information, which will be followed by a fundraising welcome pack including your Starlight Hike T-shirt.

What time does it start?
Check in starts from 6.30pm and the walk starts at 8.00pm.

How far is the walk?
There are two routes available - a 5km route and a 10km route.

How long will the walk take?
It's difficult to say exactly as people of all ages and abilities take part. Most walkers complete a 10K walk in around 90 minutes to 2 hours, but this isn’t a race so there’s no rush!

Is this walk suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and other mobility vehicles?
No. The route is over grass and across uneven terrain which would make it unsuitable. However, we welcome all to enjoy the music and entertainment provided at the event site.

Are dogs allowed at the event?
No dogs are allowed to attend this event.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email stjohnsfundraising@sueryder.org or call 01767 642 412 and ask to speak to Lucy Owens.

What's the refund policy?
Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable, other than in the event of rescheduling or cancellation by the organiser. Please read our full terms and conditions for more details.
