When & where is it happening?
London - Sunday 23 July - Battersea Park
What time does the event start?
The event village will open from 11:00 am and the walk will start at 12:00 pm, full event details will be provided in July. Be sure to leave extra time and plan your route carefully as tube strikes are planned on Sunday 23 July.
How do I get to Battersea Park?
Tube strikes could impact your travel on Sunday 23 July, so we’d advise that you check your route and plan an alternative option if needed.
The closest train station to the park is Queenstown Road and Battersea Park (both 10-minutes' walk to the Rosary Gate entrance). Clapham Junction station is approx. 20 minutes’ walk from Battersea Park too.
There are also a number of bus routes and three pay-and-display car parks, but spaces are limited and on a first come first served basis.
You can take the Thames Clipper which stops at Battersea Power Station (more info here: thamesclippers.com/plan-your-journey/route-map).
Check out our handy March for Men walker’s guide for more detailed travel options.
How long are the routes?
There will be a 2km, 5km and a 10km route. The 2km routes will be fully accessible, and all routes will be well sign-posted.
How do I sign up?
Pre-registration for our March for Men event in Battersea Park on Sunday 23 July 2023 has now closed. If you’d still like to sign up and take part, you can register on the day between 11am and 12pm, before the walk begins. Head to the event village in Battersea Park to register and collect your t-shirt.
How much does it cost to take part?
The registration fee is £10 per adult. Children under 18 can take part for free but must be accompanied by an adult or guardian over 18. We suggest you raise a minimum of £75 in fundraising to help fund lifesaving prostate cancer research.
Is there a registration fee for children?
No, children under 18 are free to join our March for Men events. We do not take registration details for children, however there is an option to add children to any adult registrations when signing up. As the parent or guardian of any children you register, you must accompany them at all times during the event and accept full responsibility for them.
Will I get a map of the route?
You will not need a route map to take part in this event as each route will be fully sign posted and marshalled to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable March for Men experience.
How much do I need to fundraise?
We’re asking everyone who takes part to try to raise a minimum of £75, so it’s best to sign up before the event date so you can start your fundraising early! By taking part in March for Men and raising money, you’ll help fund lifesaving research into better treatments and tests to beat prostate cancer.
How do I fundraise?
Here are the ways to get started:
- Set up your JustGiving page
- Share your fundraising page link with friends and family and ask them to donate
- Pop in a donation yourself to get the ball rolling
We will also email you with some handy fundraising tips soon after you sign up so keep an eye out in your inbox
What if I don't hit the £75 target?
By taking part in this event and fundraising, you will be helping to fund lifesaving research into better treatments and tests to beat prostate cancer. We have asked you to try to set yourself a target of £75 so that you have something to aim for. We will not enforce this target or ask you to make up the difference if you don’t quite reach £75. We really appreciate your support and anything you can raise really will help to make a difference.
We understand that fundraising, especially in the current climate, may be challenging but we are here to help you every step of the way and can provide you with lots of fundraising advice and support to help you reach, and hopefully exceed this target.
Can I get a T-shirt?
Yes, when you sign up you’ll receive an exclusive March for Men T-shirt. If you signed up after Friday 14 July or you haven't received your T-shirt in time for the event, please head to our T-shirt stand on the day with a copy of your confirmation email to collect your T-shirt.

Our March for Men event is taking place in the beautiful Battersea Park so you are welcome to bring your own picnic along too, but please make sure you remove all rubbish when you leave the park. We are trying to reduce our carbon footprint and limit plastic waste so we will not provide bottled water for every participant.

Why is Prostate Cancer UK only hosting a March for Men in London this year, and not other regions, as they have in previous years?
This year we're focusing on holding one big March for Men event, in London. This will allow us to maximise the amount of money raised and ultimately save more men, both now and in the future. Funds raised at this event will help fund vital research and support services for anyone affected by prostate cancer. We’ve held incredible March for Men events across the UK previously and will continue to reassess how viable it is for us to hold other events next year and beyond.
