Hopefully it will be the time to get those walking boots out, wrap up, stretch your legs and join us in January! We’ve adapted this year’s Winter Walk to utilise outdoor venues, and are liaising with the Councils to ensure that they’re all happy with our revised ‘Covid-Secure’ format. Choose your distance – you’ll get a few winter ‘goodies’, a medal, some hot food & drink ‘to go’ – and a great way to start 2021.

London's best Winter Walk

We have a proven Covid – Secure format, with multi start venues and staggered timings – so we’re hopeful that we will get the permissions.

If you want it short & sharp, the 10 mile loop from The Oval Cricket Ground will be perfect. For those wanting more of a challenge – there are Half Marathon & Full Marathon distance options, with starts either in the East (Southwark Park) or in the West (Barnes), taking in best of the River Thames and its historic bridges. This January there’ll be a Winter Walk for everyone!  

Once we’ve got the official ‘green light’ – you can get signed up, and there’s a ‘Challenge App’ with all the key information, maps, & details of the walk at your finger tips. There’s also a very active Facebook Group to share your winter journey with others.

It could be chilly – so everyone gets a special Winter Walk branded boodle hat & fleece lined neck buff at the start. Whatever the temperature is on the day – at least we’ll all look pretty cool!

Coloured arrows mark the route, with distance markers, glow-sticks after dark, and a map in the App just in case. ‘Trek Masters’ are out & about to provide support, with our chip timing system enabling the Control Room (and friends / family) to monitor your start & finish times. We have medics the rest stop venues to deal with any aches / pains or blisters.

New Year diets for some – but keeping energised is important, and depending on our final agreement with the Councils –

 

  • Coffee, tea & biscuits ‘to go’ at the start
  • For Half & Full Marathon options – rest stops at The Oval, with a  range of snacks & drinks.
  • Hot food to go & Winter Walk cup cake at the finish for everyone!
  • All dietary requirements catered for.

 

Note – details / inclusions may have to change to comply with social distancing & other potential restrictions. Entry prices would be adjusted accordingly.

You’ll get a big cheer as you cross the finish line, and a well earned commemorative Winter Walk medal. Certificates can be downloaded via the App.

Your Walk - Your Way!

Whether it’s to enjoy mid-winter London, or to kick start a New Year fitness regime – there’s a great walk for you! Join as an Individual or as a team of friends / family. Do it for yourself and self fund, or support one of our Charity Partners with much needed fundraising. We’ll go the extra mile to ensure that it’s all Covid-Secure & safe – so REGISTER YOUR INTEREST NOW to guarantee the chance to sign up to your distance choice when we go live. Places will be strictly limited this year!

We successfully operated one of the UK’s first ‘Covid Secure’ mass participation events in 2020, the September Chiltern Challenge, and we’ll be implementing a full range of updated measures on The Winter Walk. You’ll see special social distancing & hygiene requirements across the event, ensuring that it’s as low risk as possible, and that we can all boost our ‘well-being’ with a brisk January walk and start 2021 positively!
