Following the government announcement on Monday 14 June 2021, we would like to reassure our supporters that this year’s Sleep Walk event is still able to go ahead physically on Saturday 3 July 2021.
To ensure the safety of everyone at the event and to maximise social distancing, some adaptations have been made to this year’s physical event. The event has two start and finish points – one at Paignton Green and one at Torre Abbey Meadows. This year’s route is a five-mile loop, and we have staggered start times every 30 minutes from 5pm to 7pm. The event is completely outdoors with one-way systems in place and we’re paperless to reduce contact points. There will be plenty of hand sanitiser available and hand washing stations next to the toilets – we’ll be regularly cleaning contact points too.
Participants are required to follow social distancing guidelines and will be required to wear a face mask (unless exempt) when checking in to the start point, and when collecting any refreshments or their medal at the finish point, or at any other times when they are within two meters of other participants or Rowcroft staff or volunteers. Face masks will not be required for the event warm up or while walking along the event route.
While we’re doing everything we can to make the physical event as safe as possible, we recognise that many participants enjoyed the option to take part virtually so the ‘Your Way’ option to take part in The Sleep Walk from Saturday 3rd July to Sunday 11th July, at a time and place to suit you remains for 2021!
We hope you can be a part of this year’s superhero themed event and help us to celebrate the many acts of kindness and heroism we’ve seen over the past year. Registrations are open until midnight on Sunday 27 June 2021. Sign up today!
