What you need to know

The walk will begin at Himley Hall (DY3 4DF) at 11am. You’ll need to sign in at the registrations desk when you arrive so that we know you’re there and then you’ll be clearly directed to the starting point. Registration opens at 9am.

Please park at Wolverhampton Racecourse (WV6 0PE) on the day. There will be free coaches available between the Racecourse and Himley Hall all day to make it easier for you. Coaches will depart from the Racecourse from 8.45am, and will leave as and when they are full until all walkers are at Himley Hall for the start. If you would prefer to park at Himley in the morning there will be return bus transfers available between 3.30pm and 5pm from the Racecourse back to Himley Hall but please be aware that you will be required to pay for a Pay & Display parking ticket at Himley Hall.

The walk will end at Wolverhampton Racecourse, where there will be lots of fun going on to welcome you over the finish line! Look out for face painting, bouncy castles, Walk For Dreams 2017 merchandise for sale and of course a place to buy a drink! We will be showing the Wimbledon Tennis Final on the big screen and you’ll even be able to buy a bowl of strawberries and cream! There will also be the chance to grab some delicious food and re-fuel. Why not invite friends and family (even those who aren’t walking) to watch you complete the walk and join in with you for the celebrations?

Don’t miss out on this year’s official Walk For Dreams t-shirt or another piece of merchandise for this year’s walk! These will be for sale at both the start and finish line.
