  • Date and Time info: 9/09/2023

Join 2000 walkers and trek across the Capital. Setting out from the Putney Bridge start you’ll head east towards the City, zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges – each with its own fascinating story – and a mid-point rest stop at The Oval Cricket Ground for some snacks & drinks. 25km later, it’s a party style finish line celebration in Southwark Park past the final crossing – the majestic Tower Bridge!

There are several different ways that you can join:
