About the event

Join 2000 trekkers as we venture across the Capital taking in unrivalled views of the skyline from its best vantage points.

Setting out from Putney Bridge it's East towards the City, zigzagging over an array of historic bridges, each with its fascinating story, before a midpoint stop at Kennington Oval for some snacks and drinks.

25km later, it's a finish line celebration in Southwark, past the majestic Tower Bridge.
