London Winter Walk


A great event to walk off the Christmas celebrations, and to kick start your New Year fitness regime!

There are 42km Full Marathon & 21km Half Marathon options, both starting & finishing at The Oval Cricket Ground on Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 January, and take in highlights of the Thames, its historic bridges, and many of the Capital’s key landmarks.

Families are welcome, there’s a free winter bobble hat & neck buff, rest stops with snacks, with a special medal and hot food at the finish.

Whether it’s to enjoy an active day out with friends, or to maintain a New Year fitness regime – there’s a London Winter Walk for you! #StartStrong for an active New Year.

This event is strictly walking only – so no jogging or running is allowed!

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.


You'll receive a FREE Help for Heroes Technical T-Shirt when you reach 50% of your fundraising target by the due date (see information on right).
