Frequently asked questions

Sparkle Night Walk
What is the Ashgate Hospice Sparkle Night Walk?

The Ashgate Hospice Sparkle Night Walk is North Derbyshire’s biggest fundraising event of the year. It is a 10km walk around Chesterfield that will take place on Saturday 9th July 2022, starting at Chesterfield FC’s Technique Stadium. After returning to a physical event in 2021, we are excited to make it even bigger and better in 2022! 

What time will the event start?

We will update you on the exact event time in due course, but it will take place on the evening of Saturday 9th July 2022. 

Will COVID-19 impact the event and what restrictions will be in place?

We will need to follow all government guidance and restrictions that may be in place at the time of the event. 

Is there a limit on the number of people who can take part?

There will be a limit to the total number of participants, we will review this in the lead up to the event. However, we are hoping to increase the event capacity back up to 3000 people. 

Is this year’s walking route the same as the last physical Sparkle?

Yes, the route of the 2022 Sparkle Night Walk will be the same as the 2021 route. 

What time does the event finish?

The event will finish once the last walkers have crossed the finish line; this is normally around 12:30am. You should allow between 90 – 120 minutes to complete the course depending on your walking speed. If you or any of your party are struggling to finish the walk, then please let a marshal know, and we can collect you and take you to the finish line in the support vehicle.

Where can I park?

Parking will be available on the night. Further details on this will be released in due course.

Is there anything I can buy on the night?

Yes, there will be a range of sparkly merchandise that you can purchase on the night. This will also be available for you to purchase at T-shirt collection beforehand.

Are we getting electronic tags again this year?

Yes, the tag this year will be stuck to the back of your walker number. When you cross over the start and finish line, this will be registered by sensors in the mats which will check you in and out. 

What will the entertainment be on the night?

Details on this will be released in due course. However, we aim to bring you some fantastic entertainment just like we do at Sparkle every year.

Will there be toilets at this event?

Yes, there will be toilets that you are able to use at the Technique Stadium. Once you set off on the walk, there will be several portable toilet stops en route.

Will there be food/drink at the event?

Water and snacks will be provided at the refreshment point out on the route. We kindly ask that litter is disposed of properly to keep Chesterfield tidy. Hot drinks and bacon rolls (or a vegan alternative) will be provided at the end of the walk for free, but you may make a small donation to us in one of the buckets provided if you wish to.
