What distance is the walk/run?

5km (or 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 will be two laps of Endcliffe Park and there will be marshals on route to make sure you are safe and having a great time. 

The route map will be uploaded here and also on the registration website nearer the time!

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.

How does the start line work? Are there heats/waves?

add remove

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?

add remove

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?

add remove

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 or virtually as soon as we can. Unfortunately, registration fees are non-refundable for weather cancellations.

If there is a chance of cancellation, a decision will be made on the morning of the event at the earlierst possibility and you will be notified via email, text and social media posts.

I can’t attend – can I get a refund or transfer my place to someone else?

What is Team Theo?

add remove

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?

add remove

When you register for Team Theo's Glow in the Park, 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?

add remove

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!

add remove

Yes! Sports shirts are available to purchase on our online shop here for £15.

We also have our yellow charity t-shirts available to purchase on our online shop here for £5.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is a specialist children’s hospital, providing world-class care for children all over Yorkshire and across the UK.

How do I pay in my fundraising?
