Neon Night Hike 2020
It is with deep regret that due to the Government’s advice on Covid 19 and social distancing this event has been postponed. A new date will be announced in due course.
7.30pm start (arrival from 6.30pm for new registrations. 6.45pm arrival for pre-registrations. Welcome reception & warm up for all)
10km or 15km walk – you decide on the night!
Starting and Finishing at Enfield Civic Centre in Enfield Town, you can choose to walk either 10km or 15km route around our beautiful Borough of Enfield.
This year we invite you to dig out and dare to wear your best and brightest Neon outfits (optional) to make some ‘noise’ and show your support for The Nightingale! You can wear any neon clothing, footwear, face paints…..whatever you wish!
You can choose to walk individually, in a group or team – why not get a group together at school/work/local community group and wear matching outfits!?
Walkers must be aged 12 and over on Friday 5th June. Anyone aged 12 – 17 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.
Friendly dogs (on leads) are also welcome!
