Marathon Walk London 2019

Get your walking shoes on for Marathon Walk London on 28th September and support BookTrust in getting children and families reading.

BookTrust fundraising walk London

Challenge yourself this September by taking part in a one-day 26 mile walk around world-famous sights and less well-known corners of the capital - all for a great cause.

Setting off early from the event hub in Bloomsbury Square Gardens in Central London, this walking challenge will take you through the capital’s peaceful parks, along waterways, and past iconic landmarks, including St Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye before returning to Bloomsbury Square Gardens.

Alternatively, you could consider the half marathon option of 13.1 miles should you prefer, which takes a shorter route past the same notable landmarks and through parks.
