"A wonderful community event raising funds for a very worthwhile cause! It was also a time to reflect and remember the people I know who have been affected by cancer. AND I enjoyed a fun walk with friends!"
When: Saturday 25 November 2017 Where: The Grandstand in the Auckland Domain
Join us at the Grandstand in the Auckland Domain from 7.30pm for pre-event entertainment where you can purchase your spot prize balloons and prepare to set off.
Your night time walking half-marathon will begin at 8:15pm.
Your event pack contains your Walking Stars T Shirt if you purchased one, a walker number, an 'I'm Walking For' back sign for you to complete and final instructions for the night including a route map. You cannot take part in the event without collecting your event pack as you must wear your walker number.
Event pack pick up details will be announced closer to the event.
Transport and parking
Please arrive early to allow time to park. There will be restricted access to Auckland Domain during the event so you will be unable to park in the Domain itself. There is street parking available around the Domain, as well as paid car parks in Grafton and Newmarket.
If you are using a paid car park, remember to make note of what time the car park closes as you may not get back to your car until after midnight.
As there are over 3,500 participants, we recommend carpooling with other walkers or using public transport where possible.
Please note ALL roads on the route are open to traffic.
The route may feel busy at times, particularly at road crossing points. You will be walking alongside some fast moving traffic, so please remember to keep safe by walking on the pavement at all times.
Please complete your personal information on the back of your walker number, and ensure your walker number is visible at all times during the walk
Always walk with at least one other person
Study the route so you know where you are going
Do not walk on the road in an effort to pass others
