Do the Sunrise Walk your way

As we take another step towards more normality – being able to hug and simply spend time with loved ones, why not come together and join us virtually this June for a walk with a difference

After the truly tough time we’ve all experienced, it’s a perfect opportunity to look back and reflect, whilst remembering and celebrating those close to us.

Being virtual means you can see the sunrise your way any day from 1st – 27th June. Whether you chose to walk 10km or 20km, you can choose your own route or follow our established Richmond walk or go more rural with our Guildford trail. And, if it’s ‘dawned’ on you that mornings aren’t really your thing – how about a sunset walk instead?  Don’t forget to share your sunrise or sunset photos on social media and tag us in! Join our Sunrise Walk Facebook group to share your snaps, discover great walks and much more.

Although going virtual means you won’t be able hang your stunning lanterns on our memory tree, we want to give you and those who would have walked with you the chance to leave messages of celebration and dedication on our virtual Sunrise Walk memory tree, or why not create your own memory tree at home or take the lantern on your walk. We have our special lanterns available on request when your register, which can be decorated and lit to accompany you.

Watch our video to see how special it will be during your walk.

All walkers will receive a Sunrise Walk t-shirt to wear on their walk and a certificate (just let us know once you’ve completed your walk). There’s no minimum sponsorship for this event, we are just asking you to raise what you can. However, walkers who raise £100 will receive a shiny medal and those who raise over £500 will receive a special edition hoodie. Everyone who raises £100 or more will be invited to join our virtual breakfast party on Sunday 27th June 2021.
