Manchester Virtual Walk 2020

Our flagship fundraising event, the sponsored Manchester Midnight Walk, is back for its fourteenth year, this time with a virtual twist!

June 1, 2020 - June 30, 2020

Our iconic Manchester Midnight Walk is back, but with a virtual twist, meaning you can complete your walk wherever you are in June 2020.

Every year, more than a thousand people take on the famed Manchester Midnight Walk around the city centre, but in these unprecedented times, we’re asking you to complete this year’s walk with a difference!

We need vital funds to support our patients now more than ever, so we’re challenging you to either walk 5k in one day or 10k in any week of June. You can do this in your garden, in your house, or as part of your daily exercise – how you do it is up to you, as long as you keep safe!

There’s no age limit and whether you walk, run, skip or even jump it, you and your family can get involved.

It would be great for you to send us video clips of you completing your challenge if you can. We’d love to see it!

Help us fill our honey pot with lots of money to support local patients

  • Sponsored walk/run/skip/jump
  • Fancy dress optional
  • T-shirt and medal included

Once you’ve registered, we’ll send you a pack which includes a sponsorship form, plus hints and tips on how you can raise money for St Ann’s.

We hope that our amazing supporters will ‘bee’ able to take part in our new event. If you’ve already got a place in our Midnight Walk, we will automatically transfer your place to this virtual activity, unless we hear from you. Likewise, if participants who requested a refund when the original Manchester Midnight Walk event was postponed due to Covid-19 want to get involved, then simply get in touch with our events team.

If you have any queries about this update, or how to take part then please get in touch by emailing or by calling 0161 498 3631.

Entry Fees

All: £5

Your £5 will pay for the shipping of both your Manchester Virtual Walk t-shirt, which will be posted immediately and your medal, which will be posted upon completion of the event. Please do contact our Events Team and let them know how you’ve done! or call 0161 498 3631.
