Arriving for your Shine Night Walk

We want you to have the best time at Shine Night Walk, so we've changed how we start Shine London following feedback on congestion at the start venue. We will now start each distance in waves with 10 minute intervals as follows:

Full Marathon:      Waves setting off from 7pm until 8.20pm.
Half Marathon:      Waves setting off from 8.30pm until 9.20pm.
10k*:                       Waves setting off from 9.30pm until 10pm.


You need to:

• Choose which wave start time you'd like to join, along with your friends. Not everyone can be in the first wave, which we know from previous years is usually the most popular, so do make full use of the time allocated, otherwise you may spend longer queuing (we'll provide more information nearer to the event).
• We ask that you arrive 35-45 minutes before your chosen wave time. For example, if you're taking part in the full marathon, and want to start as part of the 7.30pm wave, you should arrive at around 6.45pm-6.55pm.

Please note:
• It's crucial that you arrive within the correct time slot for your distance. You will not be able to begin your event in the incorrect time slot.
• Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee your starting wave time, and there may be some waiting on the night.


*10k: We are experiencing a high demand for our Shine Night Walk London 10k - we have therefore decided to pause entries into the event for a period of time so that we make suitable logistical adjustments. We can confirm the event will go ahead as planned. If you require any further information please contact the Shine Night Walk hotline on 0300 123 6624 and a member of our team will be happy to assist you.
