Breast Cancer Charity Night Walk

Bra Image

We are back and can't wait... Join in the fun of the MoonWalk Scotland* night charity walk and experience Edinburgh like never before! Edinburgh turns pink to honour all MoonWalkers… Holyrood will never look so fine as The MoonWalk Scotland comes to town, whilst raising awareness, investing in prevention, and supporting those living with breast and other cancers. 

A Walk the Walk hidden gem… the same energy, the same unique experience, just a wee bit smaller MoonWalk than its southern sister.

Half Marathon 13.1 or Full Marathon 26.2 miles... the choice is yours!

Our themes have been fabulous, from funky DISCO, roll up with the CIRCUS or Yee ha! fun taking you to the WILD WEST... pick your favourite theme from one of our previous years here, and add a sprinkle of silver... it's 25 years of MoonWalking after all... so which will you choose?

Every mile you walk, and every penny you raise will make a difference!

Walk with us… Raise money for us… together we can really make a difference!

Frequently asked questions

How do I Fundraise?

An online fundraising page will be automatically set-up when you register and for any offline fundraising you can download a Sponsor Form below (coming soon). Take a look at some ideas here or just get in touch... you may even get a call from us! 

 

Can I download and print a paper Sponsor Form? 

Yes, coming soon.

 

Do I need 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.

 

What is this year's bra decorating theme?

 

When will I get my Event Pack? 

Your event pack including your T-shirt, cap and bra to decorate will be sent to you in Summer 2023. Many people choose to decorate a familiar, comfortable bra and put the Walk the Walk bra in their underwear drawer.

 

I want to switch to the Virtual MoonWalk Scotland.

You can transfer to the Virtual MoonWalk up to when your pack/medal has been ordered and choose to donate your £17 difference in entry fee to your fundraising page or receive a refund. Any transfers after this until the 30th August will be unable to receive a refund. Please email us with your request.

 

Are there toilets and water en route?

Yes to both. They are available every 3 to 4 miles.

 

Can I defer to next year? 

Sadly not, but you can switch to the Virtual MoonWalk until your pack/medal has been ordered. You can also change the distance of the Virtual challenge, but we cannot guarantee you a medal.

 

Are friends and family allowed inside MoonWalk City? 

Sadly not, the site is not large enough to accommodate friends and family unless they are volunteers.  If they are volunteering we can arrange for them to be at the Finish line to greet you.

 

What time do we start walking?

Walkers will be setting off in waves – We aim that everyone will be away before midnight. 

 

Where is the start and finish?

Meet in Dynamic Earth, Holyrood Park, Edinburgh EH8 8AS. Take a look at this google map

Whilst our Start and Finish area will still be on Holyrood, our Meeting Area, Bag Store and Recovery space will be just a few minutes away at Dynamic Earth.

 

I want to cancel my place. 

Please email [email protected] Have you thought about volunteering instead? You would be able to greet your teammates at the finish line!

 

Closing dates for entries

Hurry... entries will close once all entries have gone or closer to the MoonWalk... so don't delay, enter now!

Everything to do with teams

How do we enter a team?

At the start of your registration, you need to enter a team name and you will automatically become the Team Leader.

 

Ways to enter your Team Members!

  1. After entering the team name, you can then enter the email addresses of your team and they will receive an email inviting them to join. They will need to pay for their own places and complete their registration.
  2. Let your team members know the team name, they can then head to our website and select the ‘Join Team’ option on the registration form
  3. Once the Team Leader has registered, before they pay, they can choose to register another person. You can then enter the rest of your team members and pay for them, but you will need each person’s details.

 

Can I have a team taking part in the MoonWalk Virtual and MoonWalk Live?

Yes! Just choose your option on entry and make sure everyone joins the team!

 

Can I enter for someone else? 
Yes – you may make an online entry for each member of the team, provided that you have their permission to provide the required information (including their unique email address) and accept the terms and conditions on their behalf. 

 

Can some of us enter to walk half and some full?

Yes. Make sure you enter the equivalent finishing times (e.g. 5-6 hours for the full, 3-4 hours for the half) and join through the team link or by joining an existing team and we will do our best to keep you together.

 

I want to invite friends and family to join my team?

Fantastic! Already have a Team but want more to join in the fun?... Send your friends and family an invite by following these easy steps

 

What is the fundraising target for a team?

We ask that everyone who enters The MoonWalk aims to raise a minimum of £100. Here are a few ways to help you reach that magical number and more!

 

Any further questions?

Lots more information will be available closer to the MoonWalk.

I have entered what now?

When do I receive anything from you?

We will be sending you emails with all the information that you need to get going and start training for your challenge. Walking is the most accessible sport and we will send you information that can really make a difference.

 

Your event pack including your T-shirt, cap and bra to decorate will be sent to you in Summer 2023.

   

Plus, you’ll be receiving regular emails from us with all the most up to date MoonWalk news as well as other helpful information and you can always get in touch at any time!

 

I haven't received my confirmation email

No problem, just email us here.

 

I made a mistake can I change my entry?

For those who haven’t already received a pack from us, you will be able to change your bra size, t-shirt size and estimated finish time up to 26th March. Email here to do so.

 

I need to cancel?

Please fill in this form.

All about fundraising...

ere are a few ways to help you reach that magic number!

  • Update and share your online page with friends and family. 
  • Have a bake sale at work/school/church; in fact anywhere! Everyone loves cake!
  • Exchange your time for donations e.g. doing shopping, watering gardens, baby or dog-sitting etc
  • Give something up for sponsorship! Go without your favourite treats for a month. Chocolate, alcohol, cake? Can you manage it?
  • Organise an event such as a coffee morning or a quiz – easy to do and very popular!

 

Tops Tips to boost your fundraising page!

 

An Online Fundraising page will be set up on registration... so make the most of it!

  1. Make sure you upload a photo of yourself, so your friends and family can see it’s you!
  2. Tell your story! Why are you taking part? And what are you doing? Many people walk in memory of someone dear to them, or you could be celebrating your all clear! Or just getting a little bit fitter!
  3. Make a reasonable size donation first yourself as this sets the standard for those to follow. If you make a £25 donation – many will follow you and donate the same amount.
  4. Update your page with your progress. So, those new trainers, click and post; that soggy training walk; click and post; your decorated bra, click and post! You get the idea!
  5. Share your post regularly – every time you update it, share it, so everyone can see your progress and commitment! No need to ask for donations, your page will do it for you!
  6. Say thank you! Every time someone supports you be sure to say thank you so they feel appreciated and loved!
  7. Share! Share! Share!
