Night to Remember

Night to Remember is a ladies only 5, 10 or 15 mile midnight walk along Eastbourne’s streets and seafront. By putting your hands up to take part in the midnight walk, you will be helping us to reach our goal of reaching more families in your local community. Every mile, every penny, every woman – let’s make it count.


Eastbourne Night to Remember midnight walk

Midnight, Saturday 20 May 2017

After an energetic warm up, the route will start on the promenade at the sovereign Centre in Eastbourne. Ladies will walk along the promenade to Sovereign Harbour and looping around, participants will then make their way towards Holywell and back to the Sovereign Centre, taking in the beautiful sight of Eastbourne Pier at night. Ladies opting for the 5 mile route will return to the Sovereign centre after the harbour section.

New for 2017, our 15 mile urban trek will challenge participants to go the extra distance, in addition to our shorter flat scenic routes along the seafront and harbour, our 15 mile walkers will undertake tough urban inclines to reach fabulous view of Eastbourne lit up at night.


This event is now in its eighth year and is a highlight in our events calendar for East Sussex. Over the past seven years, over 4,500 ladies have taken to the night in Eastbourne and have raised a over half a million pounds for Chestnut Tree House. It makes a big difference to our families to know there are nurses available 24 hours a day. There are still many children in East Sussex, who really do need our support, by taking part in Night to Remember, you can help us to reach out to more families and make a bigger difference.


Night to Remember is just £20 per person to enter, which includes a fundraising pack, night pack (our exclusive purple t-shirt, torch and medal), refreshments en route and breakfast upon return. Register now and join us on this exciting event! Registration closes on 8 May 2017 and you cannot enter on the night.

The first 500 participants to register online will qualify for the earlybird discount of £15 entry!

The Big 200
