Will I get a t-shirt with my participation?

Yes and most definitely! Every registered Brave Walker will receive a specially designed t-shirt and you are welcome to buy additional t-shirts for your friends and family. All proceeds raised will go directly to supporting Brave Spaces initiatives.

Do I have to wear the T-Shirt during the walk?

We would love all Brave Walkers to wear out t-shirt and share our message! (We also think it will make a great photo.) However, feel free to wear what you feel good in!

Is there a cut-off time for completion?

The Brave Walk is a self-paced walk and you can complete the walk at your own pace. There are also kiosks and vending machines along the way where you can stop to take a break. There are many opportunities to take photos or just watch the sea. However, we encourage all Brave Walkers to be back by 10.30 am so they do not miss out on the post-walk activities!

Can we leave during the walk?

We have full faith in all Brave Walkers to look out for themselves and their friends and we don’t take attendance, so if there is a need to leave the walk half-way, you can do so but do let someone know, just in case.

Who can join The Brave Walk?

The walk is open to everyone who supports the cause. Organised by Singapore women’s non-profit Brave Spaces – a non-profit organisation which believes in engaging women to empower other women in Singapore.

Will there be a baggage storage area at the site venue for us to keep our bags?

No, there will be no baggage storage area so we strongly encourage all Brave Walkers to pack light and carry minimal items for the walk.

What happens in the event of inclement weather?

A little rain will not stop the first Brave Walk! However, Brave Spaces Limited reserves the right to delay the commencement of the walk in the event of inclement weather; should terrible weather persist even after a reasonable delay, the Organiser reserves the right to cancel the walk without refund.

What if I have an amazing question which isn’t answered here?

We would love to hear from you to please drop us an email at events@bravespace.org. If your question is really awesome, we might add it to our FAQ!


Route FAQs

Where will we be walking?  

The route will take us along the coastline of East Coast Park. We will be using the footpath and park connector so all Brave Walkers do not have to worry about vehicular traffic.

How long is the walk? Do I need to be super fit to join?

The walk is a 6.5km long walk along the coastline of East Coast Park. This is a non-competitive walk and we expect the pace to be moderate and leisurely so you do not have to worry about needing to be super fit to join. However, power-walkers are very welcome!

Are drinks provided during the walk?

There will be a water-point along the way but in an effort to reduce waste, we encourage all Brave Walkers to bring a reusable water-bottle and their own beverage as it can get pretty hot. There are vending machines and kiosks along the route (the machines accept notes and $1 coins). All walkers will also U-turn at Marine Cove where there are eateries and a convenience store.

Can I rollerblade or cycle during the walk instead?

The Brave Walk is a walking event and to ensure the safety of all participants, rollerblading or cycling during the walk is strongly discouraged.  

Can we bring strollers or scooters for my child?

Yes! This is a family-friendly event and strollers, prams and scooters are welcome.

Will I get lost along the route?

Very unlikely! Our friendly Brave volunteers are stationed along the route for safety so you’ll be able to see them. Ask them to help you to snap photos!
