The Twilight Walk – London

A huge Thank You!

We’d like to say how grateful we are to everyone who took part and helped make The Twilight Walk London 2024 such a success. We honestly couldn’t have done this without each and every one of you!

Watch this space!

The Twilight Walk London 2024 might be finished, but we’re already lacing up our shoes and getting ready for next year’s walk. If you’re keen to get involved, watch this space for details on the 2025 event!

The Map

From circus workshops to stilt walkers, face painters and Rock Choir – this year’s Twilight Walk is going to be one to remember! 

When you arrive, head to the registration desks and get checked in by our wonderful volunteers. 

Then, in the beautiful St Mary’s Church, you’ll find all our fascinating stands and workshops – like Meet the Research Team, where you’ll gain valuable insights into the research your funds are supporting. Or head downstairs to get stuck into arts and crafts, and even a circus workshop! 

We know it can be an emotional day, so members of our friendly and supportive team will be on hand to answer questions, introduce you to others, or simply chat and provide a listening ear.  

Need to get your hands on some more The Brain Tumour Charity merchandise? We’ll be selling our branded items at the start venue if you fancy grabbing yourself a beanie or hoodie.  

Need to grab a snack? There’ll be food vendors at St Mary’s Church. If you’re feeling peckish before you start or fancy a well-deserved bite after the walk, there’ll be food available from The Yorkie Wrap Co.  

What better way to end your walk and celebrate everyone’s achievement than by crossing the finish line, where you’ll be handed your Twilight Walk 2024 medal to the sound of Rock Choir! 

Frequently asked questions

Yes! The Twilight Walk is for people of all ages and abilities. However, children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 

The route is suitable for wheelchair users, however please contact us prior to the event to notify us that you’re taking part in a wheelchair.

Both the 5km and 10km routes will have the same start and finish location. 

The 10km walkers will set off first followed by the 5km walkers. 

There’ll be a front walker for both the 5km and 10km distances, plus a middle walker and a back walker, to help everyone follow the correct route – but it will also be signposted and have supporting marshals. 

We recommend, if you are walking in a mixed distance group, that you all start together in the 5km group and then, at approx. 2.5km, the 5km group will loop back towards the finish line and the 10km group will continue on, before looping back through St James’s Park on the return route.    

The return route for both groups is along the same route through Hyde Park. Why not wait for your teammates’ return at the Serpentine Bar & Kitchen, enjoy the stunning lake views and a well-earned treat before regrouping to walk back together? 

Yes, of course! If you’d like to meet and walk with others, there’ll be a meeting point arranged where you can meet others before the walk starts. 

In 2024, we will be making the first walking wave dog friendly so if you wish to bring your furry family members, register for the 3pm start time. Dogs must be kept on leads, and supervised at all times.

A relaxed thoughtful occasion shared with friends and like-minded strangers, filled with the uplift of stories shared and nature observed, a Twilight Walk is, like twilight itself, is a bookend, punctuation, a moment for peaceful reflection in our busy lives which offers the possibility of a special sunrise offering new hope.
