Walk for Waste

23 Jun 2018


Starting near Putney Bridge (Fulham, west London) around 10am, we will head east towards the City, zigzagging across the array of historic bridges, with a break for lunch in Vauxhall. The finish line is in Southwark past the majestic Tower Bridge. Everyone is welcome, and there is no obligation to complete the full 25km. Anyone preferring to do the 10km walk can join the group at lunchtime.

Its same cost as last year - £20 sign up for individuals and £18 for teams. However, you will get an event t-shirt and a water bottle included in that.
