Route overview – Subject to Change!
Wednesday 3rd July
We meet early on Wednesday morning for registration and a safety briefing. You’ll be provided with route maps (and route files in advance), before being set off in waves.
The route starts at Greenwich, and snakes its way along the banks of the Thames. You’ll spend the first part of the morning looking across the water to the financial district, before venturing on to the more well-known areas of London – Tower Bridge, City Hall and Southbank.
We will provide regular refreshment stops along the way, offering a welcome chance to put your feet up for a minute or two and grab a hot drink (did somebody say PG Tips?!).
The second half of the walk sees us step away from the crowds and towards the quieter riverside walks through Chelsea and the London Wetlands. As we turn the final bend of the river, Richmond comes into view, along with the knowledge that the walk is almost over!
Total distance will be around 26 miles / 43km (a marathon).
