You’ve done lots of training and fundraising and your Pink Ribbonwalk is just around the corner! Here’s what you need to know about what will happen on the day.
Before each Pink Ribbonwalk, we’ll lead you through a fun and gentle warm up to make sure you’re ready to take on your walking challenge.
There'll be plenty of toilets, seating and a place to buy hot drinks. There’ll also be toilets at regular points along the route at the rest stops.
Your four-legged friends are very welcome to join you. Please remember that they must be on a lead at all times and should be capable of completing your chosen distance – we have had dogs struggle with the longer distances, particularly on hot days.
If your friends and family aren’t walking with you and want to cheer you along, we’ll have cheering stations at various points along the route. You can send live updates to them using #PinkRibbonwalk. And remember, men can walk too so the whole family can take part – there’s no excuse for dads, sons, uncles and grandpas to wait at the finish line!
Depending on which walk you’re doing the terrain will be quite different. Make sure you train on similar terrain to your chosen walk so that you (and your feet) are prepared.
You’ll be given a pink ribbon when you register, which you can write a special message on and add to our Ribbon Tunnel. Take some time to read through some of the other pink ribbon messages that have been left over the years – it’s emotional but inspiring, and a perfect reminder of why you’re walking.
