Stomp Your way 2021

Let’s walk together for people with cancer

Stomp is back with a new, Covid friendly route and the option to do it Your Way and join in from home!

When: Saturday 2nd October 2021

Where: Wherever! If you’re in Bristol, join our walk starting at our beautiful National Centre in Pill. You’ll head out on to the towpath, following the river under the iconic Suspension Bridge and back where a welcome party will await!

Alternatively, you can take part in Stomp Your Way and join us from home by completing the distance in a place that suits you on the same day.

Distance: 8 miles of mainly flat, off-road tracks. In order to be Covid friendly we have a new route this year with no need for coaches. It means that the route is 1 mile longer than previously – will you go the extra mile for people living with cancer this year?

Registration Fees:

  • Adult: £12
  • Children (under 14): £5
  • Stomp Your Way: £5 adults and children.

Your registration fee will go towards covering the costs of the event so that all money you raise can go towards helping people with cancer.

Fundraising Pledge: Taking part is a great way to support the charity, but it’s your fundraising that will enable us to support people living with cancer. There’s no minimum amount – just raise what you can!

All Stompers will receive a fundraising pack, including a t-shirt and sponsor forms. All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

SIGN UP TO STOMP HERE!

Volunteer: Help keep our fantastic Stompers safe and cheer them on by volunteering to help on the day! Simply email fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk to sign up!

FAQ

What is Stomp?

Stomp is an 8 mile walk, now in it’s 4th year. This year it’s taking place on Saturday 2nd October. You can join us in Bristol for our walk from our National Centre in Pill, along the river Avon and under the world famous Clifton Suspension Bridge before making your way back. Or you can Stomp Your Way and complete an 8 mile walk in a location of your choice on the same day meaning you can take part from anywhere in the country, or even world!

 

How do I sign up?

Simply visit our website: https://pennybrohnuk.enthuse.com/cf/stomp-2021 and click ‘register’.

 

Do I need to train for this event?

8 miles is no mean feat and while you don’t need to train as if you were taking on a Marathon we do recommend you complete a few walks before this one to make sure you are comfortable with completing it on the day.

Is the event different to previous years?

This year sees a new covid friendly route which means we don’t need coaches and you won’t need to find parking in the city centre. It’s still off road and will be very scenic. It does mean that the walk is one mile longer than previous years. Will you go the extra mile for people living with cancer?

 

How much does it cost to enter?

The Bristol Stomp costs £12 for adults and £5 for children.

 

How old do I have to be to enter?

Stomp is open to anybody, but you need to be 16 or over to register and all under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.

 

Can my carer take part?

Absolutely! Just pop us an email at fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk and we’ll get them registered.

 

How do I register my children?

On the registration form simply select the ‘Child Stomp’ option.

 

Can I register on the day?

It would be really helpful if you could sign up in advance so that we know how many t-shirts and medals to order. This means we can order the correct amount and minimise costs to the charity.

 

How do I get my fundraising pack?

We’ll email you your fundraising pack including downloadable sponsor forms. Your t-shirt will be posted to you unless you’d like to come to our beautiful National Centre or Hub (both in Bristol) to collect. If this is the case let us know by emailing fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk and we can arrange a date.

 

Can I take part in a group?

Yes! The more the merrier! Please just ensure that you are following the latest government guidelines for social distancing.

 

How much money am I expected to raise?

There’s no minimum sponsorship but we’d love for everyone to try and raise £100. As a team we’d like to raise £25,000 which could fund 500 one to one sessions including counselling, doctors appointments and nutrition appointments. Think of all the lives we could make a real difference to if we achieve this!

 

How do I set up a fundraising page?

We’ve got a great new system which will automatically set up a fundraising page for you when you register. You’ll receive an email with a link to your page which you can then edit with a photo, your fundraising target and your story.

 

Why do I need to pay a registration fee?

Your registration fee will help us cover the costs of putting on the event. This means that every penny you raise can go towards supporting people to live well with cancer.

 

How far do I have to walk?

Stomp challenges you to walk 8 miles. For those of you who have taken part in Stomp before, that’s one mile longer than previous years. If you don’t think you can walk that far you can still get involved! For those joining us in Bristol there is an option to walk 4 miles. Email us at fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk for more information.

 

Can I bring family and friends with me?

If they’d like to walk with you they’ll need to sign up and pay the registration fee. However, everyone is welcome to join us in the garden at our National Centre to welcome all our Stompers  back!

 

Is there a cut off time to complete the walk?

The event closes at 4pm. If you have concerns about completing the walk in this time email us at fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk so we can have a chat!

 

How will you make sure the event is safe?

We will have volunteer marshals along the route to make sure that nobody gets lost and will be following the latest guidelines to ensure that the event is Covid-safe.

It is important that we all continue to act responsibly to keep ourselves and others safe while taking part in Stomp. Make sure to stay up to date and follow the UK Government guidance, including from devolved nations of ScotlandWales and Northern Ireland when undergoing your challenge. Restrictions and advice can change with little notice so we advise that you keep up to date with announcements and apply any new requirements and limitations to your fundraising as well as the walk itself.

Please consider carefully whether you wish to take on the challenge if you may be in vulnerable circumstances or be at higher risk from Coronavirus. Your safety is the most important thing to us, and we do not want anybody to put themselves at risk through fundraising.

 

Can my family and friends volunteer?

We need volunteer marshals so if you know someone who would like to help out on the day please ask them to email us at fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk.

 

Do I need any special equipment?

We will provide you with a tshirt to wear and we recommend you wear comfortable clothing that you can move in, dress for the weather (who knows what it’ll be doing in the UK!) and make sure you have appropriate footwear such as sturdy trainers or walking boots.

 

What will be happening at the National Centre on the day?

You’re in for a treat! We will be celebrating our 40th birthday so there will be entertainment, food stalls and a very warm welcome!

 

Can I park at the National Centre?

Yes! We have lots of parking spaces but please car share where you can so that we can fit as many people in as possible. Once our car park is full there will be parking available on the neighbouring business park.

 

Cancellations

What happens if I have to cancel my place before the day?

Just pop us an email at fundraising@pennybrohn.org.uk.

 

What happens if I have to pull out during the walk?

If you feel unwell or become injured during your walk, please do not continue. Tell a volunteer marshal if you are feeling unwell and they will seek medical assistance for you.

If you or any of your household experiences any symptoms of COVID-19, please do not take part in Stomp.
