LONDON SUMMER WALK

Saturday 5 June

Full or Half Marathon Options

Oval Cricket Ground Start / Finish

Bbq & Bar

As a Team or an Individual…

.. for You or for a Charity

Our annual Winter Walk has been rescheduled for… the Summer! It’s the same route, distances & scenery – but with t shirts, shorts, and (hopefully!) a lot more sunshine. The London Summer Walk will take to the Capital for a full or half marathon looped route starting and finishing at The Oval Cricket Ground. Against a backdrop of bright blue skies, historic & iconic landscapes will adorn the route as we weave from West to East, and back again. Many people believe – there is no greater city, than London in the Summer – join us and find out for yourself! 

London's Best Summer Walk

We have a proven Covid – Secure format, with plenty of outdoors space & staggered timings. There are 2 distance options – Full Marathon & Half Marathon – both starting & finishing at The Oval Cricket Ground on Saturday 5 June. The routes take in highlights of the Thames & its historic bridges, and many of the Capital’s key landmarks. An active and fun day out in the City!

Once you’re signed up, there’s a mobile phone App to download –  with all the key information, maps, & details of the walk at your finger tips. There’s also a very active Facebook Group to share your preparation and summer journey with others.

Souvenir Summer Walk hat to keep you cool as you stroll through London and a neck buff too!

Coloured arrows mark the routes, with distance markers, glow-sticks after dark, and a map in the App just in case. Our ‘Trek Masters’ are out & about to provide support, with a chip timing system enabling the Control Room (and friends / family) to monitor your start & finish times. We have medics the rest stop venues to deal with any aches / pains or blisters.

Keeping energised is important, and you won’t go hungry or thirsty…

  • Coffee, tea & biscuits ‘to go’ at the start
  • Rest stops en-route, with a full range of snacks & drinks.
  • BBQ to go & Summer Walk cup cake at the finish for everyone!
  • All dietary requirements catered for.

You’ll get a big cheer as you cross the finish line, and a well earned commemorative Summer Walk medal. Certificates can be downloaded via the App.

Your Walk - Your Way!

Whether it’s to enjoy an active & fun day out with friends, or to keep that summer fitness regime going – there’s a London Summer Walk for you! Join as an Individual or as a team, and do it for yourself and self fund, or support one of our Charity Partners with much needed fundraising.
