Turn up the heat for the Pilgrims Hospices Firewalk! Dubbed ‘the hottest, shortest sponsored walk in the world’, the Pilgrims Firewalk is a barefoot walk over red-hot wood embers up to 800 degrees!
Face the flames for Pilgrims Hospices! No tricks, no special effects. Just you and the fire. It’s the ultimate test of courage and the perfect challenge for any fitness level. No previous training required. You’ll receive a series of informative videos in the days before your challenge, as well as a light-hearted, interactive training seminar with our firewalking expert, Cliff Mann, at the event leaving you feeling all fired up and ready to face the flames. Cliff has guided 1,000s of people across the fire, over a 30-year career, so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands. A firewalk is a truly life-affirming experience. Not only will you conquer the most primal of fears, you’ll raise vital funds to support hospice care too. And after all, if you can walk on fire, you can find the confidence to do anything! Spaces for this bucket list experience are limited per event, and sold out in 2020, so early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
