We wanted to say a massive thank you for agreeing to take part in The Abingdon Bridge Firewalk challenge on 12th November 2022. We are really looking forward to seeing you.
Here are a few final notes regarding the evening.
If you haven't already done so, please ensure that you have completed the online registration form HERE (we will have spare forms on the night too!)
Anyone under 18 will need to have their registration form signed by an attending parent/guardian on the evening.
For those participants who have pledged to fundraise £50.00 in sponsorship in addition to their registration fee, this is due before the date of the event in order to be allowed to participate. Please ensure that your fundraising pledge has been met through your JustGiving Page. Alternatively payments can be made using this link LINK
WHAT DO I WEAR ON THE NIGHT?
As no special clothes are required, casual clothing is fine as long as your trousers can be rolled up and there is no obstacle to removing your socks. Wet wipes are a good idea afterwards to wipe any soot off your feet. A pair of flip flops or similar will make it easier should you so wish.
6:00pm Gates/Bar open - Abingdon United FC, Northcourt Road, Abingdon OX14 1PL
Firewalkers please arrive by 6:30pm to complete your check-in. There will be a room set aside for Firewalker Registration/Officials and Training. Anyone under 18 will need to have their registration form signed by an attending parent/guardian.
7:15pm Training session:
8:30pm Live Music: Marky McFly, Sofie Elyse, Lillibet & Zen Lewis
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE EVENING OF THE EVENT?
The registration process is between 6:00pm - 6:30pm. After the training session you will be brought out to the prepared fire lane.
An experienced member of the T4C team always crosses the lane first to ensure it meets our strict safety criteria and once the go ahead has being given, each walker is then given the opportunity to walk across the fire lane.
After all the walkers have safely crossed the lane you will be led back to the training room for a quick debrief and presentation of a certificate of achievement.
ALCOHOL AND PRESCRIBED/NON-PRESCRIBED DRUGS
Due to the inherent risks associated with firewalking, any substances which adversely affect the operation of your nervous system will have a negative impact on your ability to walk safely over hot coals. Any person who appears to be visibly intoxicated will be declined the opportunity to Firewalk.
If you are taking any prescribed medication you are unsure about, please refer to your local GP for advice.
