  3. What distances are available?

    At The MoonWalk London, there are 2 challenges:

    1. A Full Marathon    - 26.2 miles
    2. A Half Moon Plus  - 15.1 miles

    Please be aware that to create a really interesting route we made the decision to extend a Half Marathon by 2 miles, making it the Half Moon Plus - 15.1 mile... but don’t worry, you have plenty of time to prepare and if you can do 13.1 you can certainly go another 2!

  4. What is this years theme?

    This is what you have all been waiting for, this year's theme is ‘Your Hero’! So whether you choose your favourite superhero, your childhood hero, or it could be that your mum is Your Hero... get creating and decorate ‘Your Hero’ bra.

    What a wonderful way to pay tribute to those that inspire you the most... let your imagination run wild!

  5. Where and when does it start and finish?

    The challenge starts and finishes at Clapham Common

  6. Do I have to wear a bra?

    Wearing a bra to take on a challenge has always been the Walk the Walk trademark and one of the wonderful reasons we have managed to raise so much awareness and money for our vital causes. We know just how much courage it takes, but it is also fantastic FUN! Within minutes of arriving at The MoonWalk, you will feel the spirit, energy and company of thousands of like-minded walkers at this Carnival of colours, feathers, fringing and fabulousness… and if you do still feel a little self-conscious, then read on!

    But what about my wobbly bits!

    Walk the Walk embraces all bits and we love you for having the courage to get out there make a noise, raise awareness and pound those pavements. One thing you can guarantee at any MoonWalk is that every age, height, shape and weight will be there… In fact, you are so unique you will be the only one that looks exactly like you!

    If that doesn’t convince you, there are many ways of decorating your bra if it will give you a little more confidence on the night, carefully positioned voile and fringing can go a long way!

  7. Can men enter The MoonWalk?

    YES! Men can Walk the Walk, and Men Can Get Breast Cancer Too so it is important that they stand to be counted. As The MoonWalk is all about raising awareness and raising money, nothing does it quite as much as a man in a decorated bra… actually they tell us it’s like wearing pockets on your chest and most men enter into the spirit by using their bra to stash their power bars, phones and probably a jelly baby or two!

    It’s fun, it supports all the women in their life, as well as the men… But if the bra is just one step too far, our men now have their very own Men Get Breast Cancer Too T-shirt as an alternative option.

  8. Age restrictions

    Walkers must be at least 13 years of age on the day of the MoonWalk.

  9. What is the route?

    The MoonWalk route is currently being created, we always try to keep the Full Moon and Half Moon walking together as far as possible. More info coming soon!

  10. Can I use walking poles at The MoonWalk?

    NO. Due to the nature of the event and the number of people taking part, it is not possible for you to take part in The MoonWalk using walking poles as this could lead to an unintentional injury of either yourself or others. Our volunteers in MoonWalk City or out on the route will ask you to hand over your poles, which will be returned to you at the finish line.

  11. I have a disability - can I enter?

    Disabled entrants are welcome to take part, although due to the nature of the event we ask you to contact us (+44 (0)1483 741430) prior to filling in the entry form as some disabilities may not find the event feasible. Please be aware of the following:

    1. If the disabled entrant is able to take part and requires assistance from another person, (or people) the helper will be guaranteed a place.
    2. If the number of support people exceeds 1, additional guaranteed places will be at the discretion of the organisers.
    3. Please note that those people assisting a disabled entrant will be required to pay the entry fee, but will not be required to raise sponsorship if they do not wish to.
    4. In certain cases, it will be possible for Walk the Walk to allow a change in the support person or people. Any request for a change in personnel must be notified to Walk the Walk. Once the event entry list has been closed and passed to the emergency services prior to the event no changes to entrants will be permitted.
    5. Due to the nature of the event, we are unable to specify a particular start. However, all due considerations in respect of Health and Safety will be given. More information to follow.

  12. Can I run at The MoonWalk?

    No. The MoonWalk is a Power Walking challenge and running is not an option. All marshals on the route are instructed to report any participants running and to advise them that this is a Power Walking only challenge.

    Any participants running any part of the route will be asked to leave the course immediately and will not receive a medal.

  13. Can I change from the MoonWalk Live to the MoonWalk Virtual?

    Yes!

    You can transfer up until 30th April 2022 and choose to donate your £14.50 difference from your entry fee. Any transfers up to Thursday 31st March 2022 (6 weeks) in advance of the event or more can request a refund. Please email us with your request.

  14. What is Walk the Walks environmental policy?

    Walk the Walk has always held strong environmental policies across all areas of the charity. Often our demands and aims have been, ahead of availability, technology or are cost prohibitive. We support the belief that a healthy planet is a foundation for healthy people.

    It is our constant ambition to be as environmental as we can be, but we cannot fight every battle, and we are mindful that our environmental aims should support, not impact on the funds we grant for breast and other cancers. 

    These are just some of the ways that Walk the Walk supports the environment

    • Ethically sourced t-shirts
    • Where possible all unused items are donated to other organisations. 
    • We have an organic policy and all food handed out at our events is either organic or squeaky clean
    • Any forks or spoons used at events is made from corn-starch Any unused medals… which is rare, are melted down and re-moulded
    • Our printed materials use sustainably sourced recycled paper, which is also recyclable.
    • Plastic is only used where there is absolutely no alternative option. Where it is used, it is produced from recycled materials as well as being recyclable.  
    • All our balloons and weather protectors are bio degradable
    • The helium we use is recycled and comes from hospital equipment
    • Event branding and materials are carefully looked after and used many many many times.

    The list goes on; we believe it is important to not just talk the talk, but also Walk the Walk!
