Midnight Memory Walk

Our biggest event of the year is back! Now in its 11th year, the Midnight Memory Walk continues to capture the imagination, with over 1,000 people lacing up each year. We'd love you to take part in the 6 or 10 mile sponsored walk and help us to celebrate 30 years of Kirkwood Hospice.

The Midnight Memory Walk involves participants taking on a circular six or ten mile sponsored walk, starting at the University of Huddersfield. The evening starts from 10pm, with registration, a group warm up and fantastic entertainment. On the stroke of midnight, confetti cannons will pierce the night air to signal the start of the walk.

Once signed up, each walker will receive a walker’s guide as well as a t-shirt to wear on training walks and on the night of the walk itself.


A walk to remember

It doesn’t matter why you decide to take part in the Midnight Memory Walk; it could be in memory of a loved one; to get fit or simply to enjoy a great night out with friends and colleagues.

Whatever your reason, age or fitness, it promises to be a fun, inspiring and rewarding event, with fellow Hospice supporters coming together for the biggest and best fundraising night of the year.


On the night

The usual brilliant party atmosphere awaits you, with entertainment, live music and face painting, along with a group warm-up before you lace up and set off on the walk.

The event starts at 10pm on Saturday 24th June with the walk setting off at midnight.


Registration Fee

The entry fee is £15 per person (£8 for walkers aged 16 and under).
