We have 10 local walks taking place this year in parks across the UK - so round up your loved ones, pick your nearest event and sign up now!
This June, we're coming to 10 cities across the UK to for a weekend walk in the park - to join thousands of people raising funds and awareness of a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes in the UK. We'll have a short (2k), medium (5k) and long (10k) route planned out for you - all you need to do is sign up and get raising funds to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
Leeds, Glasgow, London, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff and Belfast.
The registration fee is £10 per adult. Children under 18 are free but have to be accompanied by a guardian over 18.
As for fundraising, we're suggesting that you raise a minimum of £50 - but we'd like you to aim higher!

Yes there is, The Bournemouth Hospital Charity have been organising a March for Men every year since 2014 with the money raised going towards funding innovative new equipment to improve care for their men's health patients. To sign up for this event please visit the Bournemouth Hospital Charity's website.
It's important to be prepared. So we’ve put together a list of essential items to make sure you’re ready for any eventuality.
Think about the type of walk you’re doing. If you’re walking a relatively short distance, or on flat and well paved ground, trainers or comfortable shoes should be fine.
If you’re doing a longer walk of 10k or more, you should consider wearing walking boots and walking socks (avoid football socks, as these are not suitable for walking long distances). If your boots are new, it’s a good idea to wear them ahead of the event to break them in and to help prevent blisters on the day.
Everyone enjoys walking in the sunshine, but the weather can be changeable. Make sure you prepare for every eventuality and pack both waterproofs and suncream.
If it’s likely to get cold on your walk it’s a good idea to also pack a light jumper so you can add or remove layers.
There will be first aid available at every event we organise, but it’s a good idea to bring along your own supplies too just in case. If you know you struggle with blisters make sure to pack blister plasters and antiseptic wipes.
There will be food available at every event we organise, but it’s still a good idea to take along some of your own snacks in case you get peckish along the route.
If you’re organising your own event be sure to pack enough snacks to keep you going throughout the day.
We will provide water at every event we organise, but we would strongly recommend that everyone takes along their own water too.
Other items to consider packing include:
Prostate Cancer UK’s March for Men was a great experience and for me, very important. The event gave me time to reflect on my dad and his life. I also found comfort in meeting other people who have been affected by the disease. My message to anyone thinking about taking part in March for Men is to go out and march for someone that matters to you.
