To be honest, it was a surprise to me how well the hospice catered for my mum and all of us as a family. The hospice was not as I expected – it was a pleasant place to be at a difficult time.Family of a patient

The route is fairly flat and on footpaths and ends back at Manchester Central.

Manchester Central is open from 9pm, where you can enjoy the evening’s entertainment, decorate your official t-shirt and purchase bright accessories so you stand out from the crowd. As you cross the finish line you can collect your medal and goodie bag to celebrate your achievement!

The NCP are once again supporting us by offering our walkers a discounted parking rate of £3 for specific car parks on the night of the walk. The closest car park is Central Lower, which is directly under Manchester Central, but the offer is extended to the Oxford Road and Great Northern NCPs. To benefit from this offer, please bring your car parking ticket to the car park validation desk, where it will be validated. Once you’ve finished the walk you will pay the reduced rate at the car park machine before you exit. If you don’t get your car park ticket validated you will be charged the full parking rate.

Some people walk to remember a loved one, others walk for fun, but everyone that takes part in our event is walking for St Ann’s Hospice.
