The 27km Bob ‘Tug’ Wilson’s Walk for Kids with Cancer is a walk with breathtaking views, showcasing the harbour’s beautiful landscape from Sydney to Manly.
For those who join us year after year, you already know the walk is a challenging one. There are stairs, hills and footpaths with varying surfaces. The walk is 27 kilometres long and depending on how fast or slow you go, will take a minimum of 5 hours.
There are 3 water stations along the way where you can rest, rehydrate and snack to keep your energy levels up. All our rest stations are staffed with very happy volunteers to cheer you along the way!
The 1km walk is a new addition for this year, ensuring that all our patients and families can get involved in this fantastic community day.
The 27km Walk
Easy public transport routes are available into Circular Quay. It is then a short stroll to the start line at the Museum of Contemporary Art where the adventure begins.
Your recommended start time is indicated by the colour on the top of your bib. Although this isn’t a mandatory start time, in order to avoid large crowds at the start we recommend arriving approximately at the nominated time.
Red – 6.15am
Blue – 6.30am
Green – 6.45am
Orange – 7.00am
Yellow – 7.15am
The walk ends at the Manly Novotel. Cross the line and walk straight in for a lunch pack and a well-earned drink. Then settle back to enjoy Manly Beach as you celebrate and rest up after completing Bob ‘Tug’ Wilson’s Walk for Kids with Cancer.
The 1km walk
The new addition in 2019 of a 1km family friendly walk along the Manly Corso means that everyone can now be a part of the day raising much needed funds for The Children's Cancer Centre at The Children's Hospital at Westmead. Not only is it a flat walk, but you can also meet up with your friends and families and celebrate at the end function at The Manly Novotel. What a great way to be involved.
