Where does my registration fee go?
Whilst your registration fee will help cover some of the event costs including your fundraising pack, snowflake medal and lights around Endcliffe Park, it’s the extra money raised on your fundraising page or sponsor forms that really make the difference for the children and families in the hospital.
Can children enter?
Yes, all children are welcome but anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied around the course by an adult.
What distance is the run?
5km! (5,000m or 3 miles, whichever way you prefer to look at it). The perfect distance for a run, jog or walk around Endcliffe Park!

The route map will be uploaded here and also on the registration website nearer the time!
Is the event timed?
Nope! We would like everyone to enjoy the informal, friendly atmosphere of running or walking along the route, so for this event, there will be no timing or results available. Everyone enjoys the course in their own way. Please feel free to bring your own timing device, if you wish.
Can I walk with my dog?
You can, however we would advise that all dogs stay on a lead as other participants may not be comfortable around dogs and it will be dark. We would also advise the dog to wear a reflective/lit up collar or lead.
What are the safety rules?
If you've suffered a recent illness or have a medical condition please consult your doctor before taking part. If in any doubt, don't participate. Safety is our top priority and all participants should take precautions. A medical team will be in attendance throughout the event.
You can read more detail about our COVID-19 safety measures here.
Do I need insurance?
You will be entering this challenge entirely at your own risk and will not be covered by The Children’s Hospital Charity. It is up to you to make sure you have insurance in place, should you encounter injury, loss or damage to yourself or any personal belongings. Please ensure you read and agree to the terms & conditions when registering for the event.

The route is pushchair and wheelchair accessible. We will be using the footpath all the way around the route. If you are unsure or worried about this please do give us a call on 0114 321 2470 or email us at [email protected]
Can my family and friends come to cheer me on?
Yes, but why would they want to just come and watch? Get them to join in the fun with you!
What should I wear?
Get your Glow on!! We want you to come prepared to glow your way around Endcliffe Park, this includes, glow sticks, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, fairy lights!! We also want to see Santa hats, elf hats and all other chrismassy costumes.

How do I join your Strava club?

How does the start line work? Are there heats/waves?
The start line will be by the stage and warm up area opposite the play area. All you have to do is listen to our announcer, they will let you know when it’s time to head to the start line – once they say “go” you’ll move with your friends (old and new) to the start line and head off around the Park! We would advise those running to start at the front and those walking to start at the back.
The finish line will be located in the Endcliffe Park play area, so once you have done 2 laps, head into the play area to collect your goodies and then head over to the cafe to get your Hot Chocolate.
Do you have any other rules?
Respect above all else. We are YES people, we’ll do what we can to ensure a great night as long as you do the same and treat all our: entertainers, participants, venue, staff, volunteers and new friends with respect. We are an alcohol, smoking and drug free zone – we use a zero-tolerance approach – no questions, no arguments, you will be escorted out.
Will the event be cancelled due to adverse weather?
Come rain or shine we will go ahead!
The only reason the event would be cancelled would be due to heavy snow and ice. If we do have to cancel for this reason, then we will aim to hold the event on an alternative date as soon as we can. Unfortunately, registration fees are non-refundable for weather cancellations.
Please see our cancellation policy for more information.
What if the event is cancelled due to COVID 19 restrictions?
If the event needs to be cancelled due to COVID-19 then The Children’s Hospital Charity will aim to hold the event on an alternative date or hold the event virtually as we did in 2020! If you cannot take part in the alternative events then the charity will be able to offer you a refund for your ticket(s). However, if you would be happy for us to use your registration fee as a donation, we’d be extremely grateful for this during this time.
Please see our refunds and cancellation policy here.
I can’t attend – can I get a refund or transfer my place to someone else?
What’s happened? Drop us an email at [email protected] or give us a call on 0114 321 2470, let’s have a chat about your options.
Will there be toilets?
Portaloos and park toilets will be available in the event village by the Endcliffe park Café, however there are no toilets on route.

What is Team Theo?
Team Theo is anyone who supports and fundraises for The Children’s Hospital Charity, which helps make Sheffield Children’s Hospital better. We are so happy you are joining Team Theo!
How do I fundraise?
When you registerfor Team Theos Glow Run , you will be also encouraged to set up your personal fundraising page. Once set-up you can let your family, friends, relatives, co-workers, classmates and neighbours know you are participating, share with them your fundraising goals, and ask them for a specific donation. Remember, it’s for a really good cause. You will be surprised how many will support your efforts. If fundraising pages aren’t your thing, you will receive sponsorship forms in your fundraising pack that you can use and once you have collected in your fundraising cash, you can bring this into the charity office.
What is the fundraising target?
We are asking each person entered to raise a minimum of £50 each. Your registration fee will help cover the cost of the event and therefore this £50 can help make a huge difference to Sheffield Children’s Hospital. However, this is not a requirement but every little helps!
Where will my fundraising go?
Sheffield Children’s Hospital is a specialist children’s hospital, providing world-class care for children all over Yorkshire and across the UK. The Children’s Hospital Charity makes Sheffield Children’s Hospital even better, by creating an environment built with children in mind. Your donations will help us support Sheffield Children's where it is needed most.
How do I pay in my fundraising?
Ask people to donate directly to your online fundraising page. That way, the money will automatically come direct to us and you don’t have to chase anyone to collect their money. If you’ve collected cash then you can pay the money in by sending a cheque made payable to ‘The Children’s Hospital Charity’ at The Children’s Hospital Charity, Western Bank, Sheffield S10 2TH.
You can also send your money in via bank transfer. Please email us at [email protected] for our bank details.
Remember, if you’re collecting offline donations please ask your supporters to fill in a sponsorship form and tick the Gift Aid Box, if applicable.
If someone else signed you up to the event - please reference both yours and their name when handing over any offline donations.
