Event description

Description

Now in its 4th year, #Walk50 is back for 2018. Join us on Friday 15th June to walk through the night and help us raise the vital funds we need to continue providing care and support to people living with cancer, during and beyond treatment.

This year you have a choice:

Option 1: You can walk the full 50km route that starts at St Thomas' Hospital at Westminster Bridge, goes West as far as Hammersmith Bridge, then heads East through Central London to Canary Wharf and down to Greenwich before heading back to The Shard and the finish line at Guy's Cancer Centre. Starting between 7-9pm you will head into the sunset, walking through the night to see the sun rise over London on Saturday morning. This option is open to those of 16 years or older.

Option 2: Or you can take a more 'leisurely stroll' (hint: it's still a long way), setting off from St Thomas' Hospital from 7pm, heading into the sunset towards Hammersmith Bridge and finishing at the 25km point in Central London sometime after midnight. This option is open to those of 16 years or older.

Option 3: Or for the first time we're opening the event up to families with children, with a 12km Family walk. You will set off from St Thomas' Hospital at 7pm and walk the scenic 12km route following the river to Putney, finishing at the first Pit Stop at the 12km mark sometime after 9.30pm approximately. This option is open to anyone of any age, but all children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

And of course, you can opt to take part in the 25k or 50km event yourself and have your family and children join you for the first 12km leg, then carry on into the night. This year's event promises to be bigger and better than ever before with something for everyone.

Supported by a fantastic team of volunteers along the way, there are Pit Stops every couple of hours where you will be fed and watered, and can get any blisters or sore joints tended to by our expert Medic Team who are on hand every step of the way.

You can sign up individually or as a team, and will be matched with walkers of a similar walking speed and led in groups by an experienced Guide - so no need for map reading or trying to follow sign-posts. You just have to put one foot in front of the other.

Everyone taking part in the 25km and 50km events are asked to raise a minimum of £300 each through our Virgin Money Giving pages.

Those taking part in the Family 12km event are asked to raise £100 per adult/£75 per child.

Registration for all distances is £15 per person/£100 per team of 10 or more if you sign up before 31st December 2017 (£25 per person/£150 per team of 10 or more from 1st January 2018).

All money raised goes to help make life better for people living with cancer.
