Terms & Conditions

All participants must pre-register for the event, as no registrations will be taken on the night.

There is a £15 per person entry fee, which covers all expenses and refreshments. (£10 before the 31 May). This fee is non-refundable.

The route will be on public roads and footpaths at night. Road closures will not be in place. It is the walkers responsibility to follow the Highway Code at all times, and to conduct themselves in a safe manner.

We ask that participants aim to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. All sponsorship money and forms should be returned to us by Friday 7 October 2016. You are not permitted to use any of the sponsorship money raised to pay for your entry fee or any expenses. All sponsorship money must be given directly to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Upon receipt of your entry form and fee we will issue a letter of confirmation, sponsor forms and a route map. Your place is not confirmed until you receive this.

Places are non-transferable so if you are unable to walk for whatever reason you must inform us as soon as possible and return your sponsor form, even if it has no sponsorship entries.

The minimum age for participants is 14. There is no upper age limit. Walkers under 18 years of age must ensure the consent section is signed by a parent or guardian and are accompanied by an adult walker over the age of 18.

Only guide dogs are accepted on Girls Night Out; no other pets or animals are permitted to accompany walkers or marshals. Entrants with limited mobility are advised to contact the Fundraising Team for advice on the suitability of the route in advance.

Girls Night Out is not a race and no running or jogging is allowed.

Participants are responsible for their own medical condition and ensuring they are fit to complete the walk. Please consult your doctor if you suffer from heart, joint, back or breathing problems or any other medical condition that may affect your ability to take part.

Participants cannot be under the influence of alcohol at Girls Night Out.

By registering for A Girls Night Out you give permission for St Nicholas Hospice Care to use your name and photo in any future publicity materials that might be produced unless a written objection is received by the Fundraising Team. We will also use your email address and registration details on our online registration system this year and in future years to make registration even easier for you. Please make sure you provide a valid email address when registering.

Both the 11.2 and 6 mile walks will be along the same route for the first few miles. Those walking the shorter route will NOT come to the Hospice grounds. A memory board will be available on Angel Hill for their use.

To keep everybody involved in Girls Night Out as safe as possible, we aim for everyone to finish by midnight. There will be a ‘quick finish’ route for the 11.2 mile walkers who are unlikely to reach the finish line by this deadline.

We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave the event at any time if you fail to meet our terms and conditions.
