IT’s the time to team your pyjamas with trainers and trail your way round Calderdale in the dark.

Registration for the annual Overgate Hospice midnight walk has opened.

It takes place in September and costs £10 to register.

It includes a T-shirt, medal, goody bag and refreshments.

Organiser Lauren Ingram said: “This entry fee ensures that every penny raised in sponsorship will go towards the care we provide at the hospice.”

The secret route is kept a surprise for the walkers, but starts at North Bridge Leisure Centre.

Lauren said: “It’s a great atmosphere on the night, a really fun evening, a great way to meet other people and a real sense of achievement when you‘ve completed the route. We have a pre-walk warm up to get the atmosphere going and refreshments are provided and two stop points on route.

“We’re hoping this year will be our biggest event yet as 2011 is our 30th year of providing support to people in Calderdale.”
