  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.

    We are unable to add someone to a team or change to a different team one registration is complete. Any queries regarding this please email [email protected]. Entering as a team is purely for fundraising, if you do not wish to fundraise together then you do not need to enter as a team. 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.

    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.

    There are 2 ways to enter your Team Members.

    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

    Alternatively, after you have entered yourself, before you pay there will be an option to Register another Person. You can choose to do this as many times as you like and then pay for everyone’s place at the end. To do this you will need all of their details.

    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?

    You can have a team made of up people doing the full, half or new moon, just make sure to select the correct distance on registration. If anyone would like to do Over the Moon this will need to be an individual or in a team of Over the Mooners. Please see more here.

    Did a friend enter you?

    Great news! You will find the link to your fundraising page in your confirmation email.

    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 does Walk the Walk treat Team names?

    Team names for the Virtual MoonWalk Scotland are for fundraising only. If you do not want to fundraise together you do not need to enter as a team.

    How do I/we join an existing Team?

    Choose ‘Join a Team’ on the registration form or follow the link in the invite email sent by the Team Captain if they sent you one. Once clicked, you can search for the team name and select Join. Please note we cannot add you to a team or change you to a different team once registration is complete. Any queries on this please email [email protected]

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

    Make sure that you have a friend or family member set as your emergency contact and know where you are going.

  4. What types of bra are available?

    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 an alternative bra size that may be suitable. In all cases we will endeavour to send the bra size that you have requested.

    32-36 A-G    38 B-G     42 D-DD (non-wired)

    Prosthesis/post-Surgery Bras:

    We are able to provide many back sizes with cup sizes up to an E fitting which includes pockets on both sides. You will be able to specify your requirement on the registration form.

  5. What are the T shirt sizes?

    Prior to the challenge you will be sent your Final Pack which will include your unique bra T-shirt! On the entry form, the following sizes are available

    Tight Fit

    Small 8-10             
    Medium 12-14

  6. Do men wear the same T shirts as women?

    All men at Walk the Walk challenges have their own unique t-shirt to raise awareness that men get breast cancer too.

  7. Entering under 18 year olds

    Entering under 18’s.

    An adult guardian must accompany any entrant under 18 for the duration of the challenge.

  8. Can I Invite friends and family to join my 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...

    • From your individual online fundraising page, click team name (in the picture banner)
    • Copy your team page URL (page link) and send it to your friends and family
    • They will be able to follow the pink join team option which will take them to register for the challenge. Once they complete the registration they will be linked to your team page.

  9. Can I take part in the Virtual MoonWalk Scotland if I am 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.

  10. 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 that have sent in their fundraising for past events and those that 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.

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

    In the confirmation you receive upon registering you will get full information about your next steps, how to begin training and what we recommend you do to get fit for the challenge. Walk the Walk will be in regular contact from the time of registration to the event and will also be available any time you should need help.

  12. Can I walk with a group?

    Whether you want to walk with one other person or a larger group, it must meet with Government COVID-19 guidelines from registration to the event.
