Moonlight Walk 2024

Clare & Friend, Moonlight Walk

Shine bright at Moonlight Walk!

Saturday 15th June 2024 | Sevenoaks Rugby Club | 6pm-12:30am

Dust off your colourful tutus, search for your best face glitter, and reach for your glow in the dark accessories… It’s time to light up the streets of Sevenoaks in memory and celebration of those special to you. Join us for an unforgettable night of walking, music and memories before celebrating with a glass of bubbly at the finish line.  

Sign up now and choose to walk either our 4 mile 🌙, 8 mile ⭐, or 13 mile 🌒 route

Our Moonlight Walk is not just a stroll; it’s a journey of love, laughter, and cherished memories.

We’re being match funded!

Thanks to the support of the wonderful Freddie Green and Family Charitable Foundation, every pound raised for Moonlight Walk 2024 will be doubled!

That means if you raise £50, we’ll receive £100 to put towards vital care for people in our community.

An evening full of sparkle

🌈 Dress to impress: Unleash your inner sparkle. Adorn yourself in vibrant tutus, glow sticks, and all things dazzling. This is your chance to shine as bright as the moon and honour your loved ones in style.

🌙 Under the moonlight: There’s something truly magical about walking beneath the moon. As the night sky casts its gentle glow, we’ll come together in a spectacle of unity, love, and shared memories.

What about fundraising?

We ask all Moonlight Walkers over the age of 13 to raise sponsorship for their walk but we would love for younger participants to get involved too with the help of friends and family.

We rely on your sponsorship for the success of Moonlight Walk; this year we are aiming to raise over £80,000 to support patients and their loved ones.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes please! We welcome all well behaved dogs at Moonlight Walk; your furry friend is very welcome.

We just ask that you please keep your dog on the lead throughout the whole walk, especially in Knole Park around the deer.

What measures are in place for participant safety?

The safety of all Moonlight Walk participants is very important to us. All routes will have marshals with phones or radios directing you and answering any questions.

Medical professionals will be walking with participants on all routes and the Raynet radio team will be strategically placed around the route for quick communication.

How long do the routes take?

We’d expect the routes to take approximately:

🌙  4 miles: 1-2 hours

🌙  8 miles – 3-4 hours

🌙  13 miles- 4- 5 hours

We have allocated 5 hours maximum for Moonlight Walk so please make sure you have returned to Sevenoaks Rugby Club by 12:00am at the latest so you can enjoy a glass of fizz and a sit down.

Are the routes suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs?

Unfortunately not. All 3 routes take you through Knole Park where there is limited access to paths, and some areas of the route are cobbled which would not be suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.

Is walking not for you?

We need over 100 volunteers to make Moonlight Walk possible, without their support, we simply can't go ahead with the event. If you're able to volunteer, please fill in the enquiry form below.

Volunteers are essential to the success of our events, they ensure our participants remain safe and importantly encourage them as they take on their challenge.
The main role of our volunteers is as route guides. You will be given a high vis, a route guide buddy and will be fully briefed ahead of the event with full instructions on where to stand and what direction to send the walkers.
