Face the flames and achieve the impossible.

Firewalk entries have now closed. Good luck to all of our brave firewalkers!

It’s time to turn up the heat for the Pilgrims Hospices Firewalk; back for its 5th year! Dubbed ‘the hottest, shortest sponsored walk in the world’, the Pilgrims firewalk is a barefoot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring up to 800 degrees! 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.

“A totally fantastic night out, it was laughter from moment I stepped in the door to the moment I left it, just brilliant” – Firewalker

No previous training required. You’ll be treated to a lighthearted, interactive training seminar with our firewalking expert, Cliff Mann, on the night 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!


“Today I feel I can achieve anything and I’m walking with a real spring in my step. Thank you!” – Firewalker

We’re pleased to welcome back Paul Incredible who’ll be performing a live fireshow to ‘warm up the crowd’ between 15 minutes before the walk itself. It’s not to be missed!
