All ladies over eight-years-old can take part in The Rowcroft Sleep Walk, no matter what your fitness level. The event is for ladies-only but men are more than welcome to volunteer. Find out more about volunteering by clicking here.
Whether you choose the five or ten mile route you’ll begin your walk at Torbay Leisure Centre. Those tackling five miles will pass Goodrington Sands, Roundham Head and Paignton Seafront before returning to Torbay Leisure Centre, while ten milers continue to Torquay then make tracks back to Paignton.
You’ll start your walk at either 7.30, 8, 8.30 or 9pm – just in time to catch the beautiful sunset over the Bay! Your start time will be allocated to you closer to the event. You’ll need to arrive at Torbay Leisure Centre around 15 minutes before that time.
Most people walk at around three miles per hour, which means it should take two hours to complete the five mile route and around four hours for the 10 mile route.
Parking will be available at Quay West Car Park; we’ll send you a permit nearer the time.
Be as creative as you like; customise your Sleep Walk t-shirt, don some dungarees or transform into your favourite farmyard animal! Just make sure you wear shoes that are comfortable and that you have your walker number clearly visible.
There’ll be toilet and refreshment stops with plenty of other fun and games along the route. Have a look at your route map for more details.
We have lots of advice on how to raise as much sponsorship as you can, such as organising a fundraising Barn Dance, or farmyard fancy dress day at work! Check out our fundraising page for more ideas. You can also download extra copies of your sponsorship form from this website, and download a poster to personalise with your name and how far you’ll be walking.
You can pick up yours from any of our Rowcroft shops between Thursday 1 March and Tuesday 27 June. Find your nearest Rowcroft shop by clicking here.
