  1. How to Enter

    Step 1: Create Account or Login

    Step 2: Registration

    Choose 1 of 3 options:

    • Create a new team and Register (Please see info on Teams)
    • Join a Team & Register
    • Register (No team Affiliation)

    Step 3: Fundraising page

    • Registration is now complete... so Personalise your Fundraising Page!

  2. Teams / Groups - all you need to know!

    Please note: each person entering The MoonWalk Scotland requires a unique email address. This applies regardless of whether you are entering as an individual or entering as part of a 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. By completing the form you agree that all the information that you have given is correct. 

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

    There are 2 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. Alternatively, you can continue and choose how many Team members you would like to enter and pay for. Also, at the end of each online entry form, there will be an option to add another person. An activation email will then be sent to each person in the team, which they will need to action.

    You can NOT use the same email address for more than one team member and please ensure you choose the same estimated finishing time if you all wish to start together.

    Did a friend enter you?

    Great news! You just need to action the email that was sent to you.

    Once you have created your personal account with your own password, you can then log in and access Training Partners to find local ‘Walk the Walkers’ to train with. It will also allow you to access challenge specific information.

    How many people can be in a team?

    As many as you like... from two and up! If you're applying online, there is no limit to the number of people you can apply for in one transaction - but don't forget any limits on your debit/credit card.

    How do we start together? 

    Please ensure that you all enter the same estimated Finishing Time and exactly the same Team Name – by doing so you should* all get the same start time and therefore be able to walk together.

    How do we start together if some of the team are doing the half and others the full marathon?

    The best way to ensure that you start together is to pick the slowest starting time for each of the challenges whilst filling in the form. So that's 8-10 hours for the Full and 5:30-6:30 hours for Half. Also, make sure you all insert the same Team name. 

    How does Walk the Walk treat Team names?

    The only time that we make use of your Team name is when we are allocating starting groups. We do not use them for any other reason. E.g. if you send in your entry form after the rest of your team, we will not automatically associate your entry with their entry. You have to tell us the actual members of your team. If you do then we will do our best to ensure you start together. If you don't then... we won't!

    *We will do our best to ensure you start in the same group. But we can't promise it!

    How do I/we join an existing Team?

    Choose  ‘join a team & register’ if you are joining a team that is already registered. Once clicked, you can search for the team name or team captain name. Make sure that you put the same Estimated Time that your teammates have already used.

  3. What information do I need to enter the challenge?

    There are a number of questions you will need to answer so please be prepared with the following information:

    • your personal details (including date of birth and a working email address)
    • please note: each person entering The MoonWalk London requires a unique email address. This applies regardless of you are entering as an individual or entering as part of a team
    • your choice of challenge
    • Team Name, if walking as part of a Team
    • an emergency contact name and phone number
    • your estimated finishing time

    Underwired Bras:

    The majority of our bras are underwired, and from the Wonderbra range (Wonderbra are the Official bra supplier to Walk the Walk.) For some of the larger sizes, this cannot be guaranteed and we will send an alternative bra to you. If you require a bra size that is not available, we suggest that you either decorate one of your own bras for maximum comfort or pick a bra size that is available and may be suitable for you. In all caseswe will endeavour to send the bra size that you have requested.

    Please note:

    If some of your team are taking on the Full Moon and some the Half Moon, it won't always be possible for you to start together. However if you select the equivalent times, shown in the table below, we will do our best to keep you together. 

    E.g. 6.30-8 hours for Full equates to 4-5.30 hours for Half, similarly, 5.30-6.30 hours on Half equates to 8-10 hours on Full.

  10. Entering 10-17 year olds

    Some points to be aware of

    An adult guardian (aged at least 18) must accompany any entrant aged between 10 and 17 years old for the duration of the challenge.

    The guardian of the adolescent must enter into the challenge prior to the adolescent entering and for the same distance.

    For schools or groups including entrants:

    a) under the age of 13 there must be a minimum ratio of 1 adult to 3 young people; and
    b) aged between 13 and 17 there must be a minimum of 1 adult to 5 adolescents.

    You can use your own credit card if you are entering a 10-17 year old, i.e. it does not have to be in their name.

  11. Invite friends and family to join your Team

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

    • Just login to your Walk the Walk account
    • Go to Manage my fundraising page
    • From your individual online fundraising page, click team name (righthand side)
    • Click the yellow button to invite teammates
    • Enter email address

    It's as easy as that... they will then receive a special invite from you to join your team.

  12. 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 people with some disabilities may not find the event feasible. Please be aware of the following:

    1. If the disabled entrant is successful in obtaining a place in the event, 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 starting point within the start line ups. However all due considerations in respect of Health and Safety will be given.

  13. Age restrictions

    New Moon - younger Walkers can enter as long as they are aged at least 10 on MoonWalk day.

    Half and Full Moons - Walkers must be at least 13 years of age on MoonWalk day.

    Over The Moon Challenge - Walkers must be at least 18 years of age on MoonWalk day.

  14. Can men enter The MoonWalk?

    YES! Men can Walk the Walk too but they don't get away with not wearing a bra as The MoonWalk is all about raising awareness and wearing a decorated bra is the Walk the Walk trademark and one of the reasons we manage to raise so much awareness and money for our vital causes!

  15. I took part in a previous MoonWalk but did not raise any money - can I still enter?

    Well... it's never too late to send it in!

    It is hard to believe, but over the past few years there have been a number of walkers who do not send us their fundraising when they have completed their MoonWalk. As a result they are taking much wanted places but are not supporting the charity by raising any money.

    The aim of Walk the Walk is to unite against breast cancer and is dependent on everybody doing their bit no matter how small. Consequently we have taken the decision to give priority to walkers who have sent in their fundraising for past events and those who are joining Walk the Walk for the first time. 

    If our records show that you have not sent in any fundraising we will be in touch soon after you have received your confirmation email.

  16. 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.

  17. Can I use walking poles?

    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 with your walking poles as this could lead to an unintentional injury of either yourself or others. Our volunteers on the route will ask you to hand over your poles, which will be returned to you on the finish line.

  18. Can I MoonWalk when pregnant?

    As long as you have checked with your midwife/doctor that they are happy that you join us, then yes you can. Listen to your body and seek medical advice if needed.

  19. Ok - I've entered online. Now what?

    Once you have entered you will receive an email confirming your place. This may take up to 24 hours but it can arrive much sooner than that

    Steps to ensure that you receive your confirmation email

    1)        Set your spam settings to allow emails from both active.com and walkthewalk.org.

    2)        Double check your spam / junk folder.

    3)        If you have not received your email within 48 hours please visit your account area to check your entry
