London Marathon Walk
An enjoyable and rewarding way to explore our capital city
Take part in this marathon walk around our capital city, taking in world-famous sights and less well-known corners as we trace a 26-mile route through London. There is also a half distance option available.
This challenging day sees us setting off early from the specially set up event hub, and takes you through peaceful parks and alongside waterways, passing iconic landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben and the London Eye as you walk through the historic heart of the city.
This year’s theme is Film, and you will pass locations used in 26 films, from classics including Chariots of Fire and the Italian Job, to Bond and Harry Potter films, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually, the Da Vinci Code, and a huge variety of other hits of the silver screen. Some spots will be instantly-recognizable, and others more obscure, but it will make you appreciate the diversity of London’s street scenes and take your mind off the miles ticking by!
There are two options available, fundraising or self payment. For more information on pricing and what is included, click here.
