There will be a t-shirt exchange on Friday 6th July at Hawcoat Park in Barrow due to a few issues with the t-shirts we handed out for the 1st time this year. Please note that all t-shirts need to be unused and in the original packaging in order to exchange. There is limited availability of sizes i.e. first come, first served. Timeslots for exchanges are below :

Exchanges Timetable*: Hawcoat Park, Friday 6th July
17:00 – 17:30 If you were handed the wrong size, please email with the size you have and the size you need
17:30 – 18:00 If you selected the wrong size online
18:00 – 19:00 Any remaining t-shirts will be available to buy for a donation of £10. This will go in the generic donation pot and it cannot be specified which charity the donation goes to.

 *Please be aware that if you come before the timeslots allotted above, you will have to wait; we have arranged the timeslots to prioritise those walkers that received the wrong size shirt through no fault of their own. Due to this, we cannot guarantee that all sizes will be available later in the evening.


The deadline for returning sponsorship is the 15th July 2018. For sponsorship collected as cash, please visit the Team Payment Form page. Sponsorship submitted via the website requires no further action.

Watch out for more info on next year's walk.
