What to expect from this year's Cerebral Palsy Alliance Ignite Walk! 

The Cerebral Palsy Alliance Ignite Walk is excited to be running two new courses this year:

5km Family Friendly Bridge to Bridge course - start time of 7pm.

Half Marathon (21km) Dusk to Dark course - start time of 4:30pm. 

The half marathon walkers will join up with the other Ignite Walkers and complete the last 5km together ensuring we really Ignite Canberra! 


Registration opens at 3:30pm - bring your registration ticket (which will be emailed to you on Friday 6 April) and head over to our friendly volunteers at the registration tent to collect your bibs, flashing head boppers and any fundraising rewards you have won.

The Cerebral Palsy Alliance Ignite Walk will kick off with a Neon Ignite Party starting from 4pm at Patrick White Lawns. Grab a bite to eat from the food stalls, indulge in some glow in the dark fairy floss and get your face painted with neon, glow in the dark face paint! Check out the official Ignite Walk merchandise and purchase a show bag which includes loads of neon glow in the dark goodies to light you up around the course. 

When you cross the finish line you will be greeted by our cheer squad and we will all celebrate together with a MASSIVE AFTER-GLOW PARTY!
