Venus: 35th Anniversary Challenge
One Night, 35 Years of Memories
With eyes sparkling and glitter in your hair, you’ll dazzle Hereford with a flowing river of pink.
September is Venus, and when that Friday sun sets, you and hundreds of other women will be the brightest stars seen on the Midnight Streets of Hereford.
Whether you experience The New Moon (5K), Crescent Moon (10K) or Full Moon (15k), you will be a part of Hereford’s biggest remembrance party.
Help turn our Coral year Pink.
To get you in the mood we have a bar, live on-stage entertainment, Venus face painting, memory lanterns and more.
Become one of our brightest stars by raising sponsorship on the best girls’ night out of the year.
It’s easy to raise money online.
