      NB 
      There will be no admittance prior to this time

    • Each start contains both Full and Half Marathon Walkers

    Entrance to MoonWalk City and the Gates closing - Gates will close at approximately 10.00pm, please ensure you arrive before.

    Start times – These times are subject to all local authorities and our health and safety confirming that the route is ready to accept walkers and will not be confirmed until the night of the MoonWalk. We hope to have everyone set off by midnight if we can.

    What happens if my start colour is different to my friends?

    If you have friends in different coloured starts, we are happy for you to join them provided they are in a start BEHIND you. You cannot join Walkers in starts ahead of your colour. This is to help everybody, so please do not abuse this condition or you may be asked by Security to go to the final (Pink) start.

  5. Transport in the early morning

    If you are taking part in the challenge and expect to finish in the early hours of the morning either because you are walking the half marathon or are a very speedy Full MoonWalker then read on.

    Most public transport does not run through the night. Indeed all mainline stations will also not have trains until later in the morning. The Underground is available all through the night.

    Bus

    There are night buses nearby, N35 and N137 stop at Rookery Road stops, with N155 running along Clapham Common South Side Road.

    Taxi

    We are working with local taxi companies to ensure that they are aware of the event. There will be a Taxi Point in Rookery Road, about 5 minutes walk from MoonWalk City.
