The Great Walk is an annual event, where Unilever employees come together to do good whilst doing good for others, by walking a full or half marathon and raising money for charity.

The Great Walk has seen over 1,000 employees come together and raise over £200,000 for small charities such as Liverpool Ocular Oncology Research Group (LOORG) and Live Life Give Life.

In 2024 we will continue to raise money for SERV Surrey and London as well as a new charity, Maggie’s.

Register today and join us for our 6th Great Walk…

Having gone from East to West along the Thames in 2019 and 2021, in 2022 we introduced a different route starting from West and finishing at The Oval Cricket Ground in Vauxhall. In 2023 we started in Waterloo, headed north and looped round to finish once again at the Oval.

The route for 2024 is still under construction but check back soon! An example route can be found further down the page.

As this event is all about raising money and awareness for our two charities, it’s classed as a volunteering day – so Unilever employees don’t need to take annual leave to participate!

 

Get involved!

You can join us on Friday 14th June in person for:

  • A Full marathon, from Waterloo to Chelsea, starting at approx. 07:45

or

  • A half marathon, from Hammersmith to Chelsea, starting at approx. 13:00 (exact location TBC)

or

  • A 10k from Putney to Chelsea, start at approx. 1500 (exact location TBC)

To make this year bigger and better, Unilever are asking for

  • A minimum fundraising target of £150 per person, so we can raise the most money to date!
  • A registration fee of £25, which will cover the cost of your involvement in The Great Walk, including stops along the way, lunch and a 2024 Great Walk branded t-shirt.
