Over 2,000 challengers will take on the 2020 London Winter Walk through the heart of the Capital, following the Thames, and passing many famous landmarks. A great way to set you up for an active New Year! The start/finish is The Oval Cricket Ground - with 2 Half Marathon distance options:

'Eastern Walk' - 21km loop past Tower Bridge to Southwark Park

'Western Walk' - 21km loop heading out to Putney Bridge

OR - if you're up for a tough one - join the early start - do both legs, and make it a New Year Full 42km Marathon Walk. Either option is a great way to kick start a fitness regime, meet some new friends, or early training if you're on a 2020 Ultra Challenge.

From The Kia Oval the 21km Eastern loop heads past Tower Bridge to Southwark Park rest stop, before heading back to The Oval via a few bridges. If you'd prefer to go West, it's along the Thames Path to a Putney Bridge rest stop then back.

Both loops follow the Thames taking in many of Londons' landmarks. There's a halfway rest stop to stock up on snacks & warm drinks before returning to The Oval base camp for a finish line celebration, medal, and a welcome hot meal.


You will get full support and hospitality all the way, whilst taking part in the Winter Walk you'll receive; 

  • Rest Stops - Free drinks & snacks 
  • Free Winter Walk beanie & buff 
  • Hot meal at base camp finish
  • Half way brunch for full marathon
