Walk, Jog, or Run the Capital

4 Distance Options

Anywhere, Anytime in February

Fantastic Prizes to be Won!

Join up to 14 February…


... Get active in February!

‘Lockdown 3’ has unfortunately meant that our famous annual London Winter Walk has moved to the end of March – enough to drive us all loopy! So to make the most of the time, and to get those legs in action – why not take on one of the classic London Loop routes as a virtual challenge? There are 4 capital circumnavigation options – from the 60 km ‘Jubilee Greenway’ which passes many historic sites in the heart of London, and was completed to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen – up to the lesser known 346 km of the ‘London Countryway’ on an outer orbit through the green belt and surrounding counties with many areas of outstanding natural beauty.



Choose your Challenge – take it on anywhere, anytime throughout February – including treadmills, trips to the supermarket, your exercise allocation, or sections of the actual route if you’re able to. Log your activity on our ‘Loops Virtual Map’ – and share your progress & stories online as we all go around in circles – clockwise! There’s a prize draw for all completing their challenge by the month end – with £500 of kit vouchers to be won. So get your gear ready – and let’s get in shape for the brighter times that lay ahead!

How it works...

Track your progress online

Once you’ve signed up to your chosen distance, you can either ‘link’ up to our London Loops Virtual with Strava (so your activities will automatically feed through to our online map) OR you can add activity distances manually (so each time it’s logged you’ll progress along your exit route on the map – along with other participants). You have all February to complete your London Loops challenge, and can join up to 14th Feb.

5 London Route Options

Walk, Jog, or Run – Anywhere, Anytime

Walking map and detailed description of section eight of the Jubilee Greenway

Jubilee Greenway

60 km

Completed to mark the Queen’s Jubilee & 2012 Olympics – the route joins up Royal Palaces, Royal parks, Historic Bridges, The Thames, Olympic Venues, and a glamorous Woolwich Foot Tunnel start.


Capital Ring

124 km

The route was completed in September 2005 with 15 sections, and passes through the green areas of urban and suburban London – again with an ‘official start’ point at that famous Woolwich Foot Tunnel.


London Loop

242 km

Promoted by Ken Livingstone – known as the M25 for walkers. A signed route with 24 sections along public footpaths through parks, woods & fields around the edge of Greater London. A riverside Erith start.


London Countryway

346 km

The route never enters Greater London. It’s a Gravesend start and runs through the neighbouring counties with footpaths & varied scenery. A showcase for the green belt – and a Ramblers delight!

Below is the cost of entry & inclusions. Please note we can only send Medals & Buffs to a UK address. Registration is open until 14th February. Free Prize Draw entry if you complete your challenge – £500 of kit vouchers must be won!
