The Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk on Sunday 4th October 2020 will start at 12:00 noon at the Bandstand in Hyde Park, London. See map.
Participants should arrive at 11am. We suggest you bring a light packed lunch and re-usable water bottle (ideally not plastic) to have with you on the walk.
The Walk will be taking place in September so dress appropriately for the weather. Hopefully, the sun will be out; however it is advisable to bring a rain coat and/or umbrella just in case.
There is limited parking around Hyde Park. Anyone who drives into the park will have to pay and display so it is best to arrive at the 10 KM sponsored walk by public transport.
The Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk will be 1 x 10 KM lap of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Everyone is invited to participate and walk as far as they can. We hope most if not all walkers will be able to complete the route, however, this is not essential as the aim is to simply raise awareness of mouth cancer on the day.
All participants will receive a medal for their achievement. See our Prizes page for details.
