About the event

A great event to kick start your new year fitness regime!

There are full marathon, half marathon and 10km options, all starting and finishing at the Oval cricket ground on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 January 2024.

Take in the Thames, its historic bridges, and many of the capital’s key landmarks. Families are welcome too.

You'll get full support and hospitality from the event organisers Action Challenge every step of the way:

  • A fully signed route.
  • A free winter bobble hat and neck buff.
  • Regular rest stops.
  • Free hot food, snacks and drinks.
  • A medal and certificate at the finish.

Whether it’s to enjoy an active day out with friends or colleagues, or to maintain a new year fitness regime, there’s a London Winter Walk for you!

Join as an individual or as a team and set yourself up for an active new year.

This event is strictly walking only. No jogging or running is allowed.

Trekking across Iceland for mental health - Maria's story

"We knew that the challenge was going to be difficult. 58km covering volcanic rock, miles upon miles of thick snow, ice cold river crossings with steep ascents and descents that pack a punch on the knees. But we've supported each other through mental health problems; we can support each other through anything"
