On Sunday 12th May 2019, the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club will be holding a “March for Men” along Weymouth seafront as part of a nationwide series of marches being organised by the Prostate Cancer UK charity and by groups and individuals (https://prostatecanceruk.org/get-involved/march-for-men).

The objective of this event is to raise awareness of prostate cancer and to help save the lives of men. It will be a family event, it will not be competitive, and marchers will have the option of turning around at three different locations, depending on how far they wish to walk: the Pier Bandstand, the Groyne (opposite Sea Life) or the Oasis Café at the end of Preston beach road.

It will begin at 9.45 am at the southern end of Weymouth promenade, opposite Alexandra Gardens and it will be preceded by check-in and a warm-up on Weymouth beach at 9.30 am.

The entry fee will be £10 for an adult, to include a T-shirt, and £6 for a child (16 and under), which will be for the T-shirt and include a £1 nominal admin fee. T-shirts will not be available after 30th April as they have to be ordered from the Prostate Cancer UK charity. The entry fee after 30th April will be £5 for adults and £1 for children 16 and under.

Marchers are encouraged to find their own individual sponsors and to pass all monies raised to the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club for onward transmission to the Prostate Cancer UK Charity.

Online registration will remain open until Saturday 11th May 2019.

Check-in on the day will take place in a gazebo on the beach. There will also be an opportunity to register on the beach on the day, but participants are advised to register online in advance.
