Sci-fi enthusiasts from across Lincolnshire are being encouraged to sign up to a sponsored walk being held in Lincoln this summer.

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice are hosting Star Walks: Lincoln Awakens, a Star Wars themed 10k walk on Saturday, September 17.

Participants will start the 10k walk at Yarborough Leisure Centre where they will be greeted by favourites from the film and warm up with Jedi training.

There will also be free food after the walk with guests treated to Han Solo Halloumi baps or a Padmé pork bap courtesy of Meltworks, local Lincolnshire outdoor caterers.

Becky Otter, Event Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said: “Whether you choose to walk for the Light Side or the Dark Side the evening is set to be a fun family evening out. Participants will follow the path through the Lincoln galactic journey where film favourites will be cheering them on. There will even be a musical surprise half way.”

Star Walks: Lincoln Awakens is the tenth annual Moonlight Walk the charity has hosted which was last year themed One Night in a Onesie.

The route will see participants leave Yarborough Leisure Centre and head to Lincoln Cathedral before making there way along the High Street and on to Yarborough Road to return to the leisure centre.

Participants must be over eight-years-old and anyone aged 16 or under must be accompanied by an adult.

Adults can take advantage of the early bird price of just £12 and children are charged a flat rate fee of £7. Participants can also buy an early bird family ticket (two adults and two children) for just £30. The early bird price is valid until June 30.

Every registered participant will receive a free Star Walks branded bag.
