"To know someone truly, you should walk a mile in their shoes." Sarcoma UK supporters walk a heck of a lot further than that.
Raise money and awareness for Sarcoma UK by challenging yourself and taking on a walking event that will reward you with an array of stunning views, unforgettable encounters and friends for life. All whilst raising vital funds for people affected by sarcoma.
Have you always wanted to do a marathon, but never fancied running one? Join Team Sarcoma on this incredible marathon walk around our capital city. You will see all of the world famous sights, and uncover some parts of London that you may not have seen before! Join us and raise life-changing funds for people with sarcoma and complete this unforgettable yet challenging 26mile long route through London on 19th September 2020.
Our Team Sarcoma trekkers will start early at 7am, wandering through tranquil London streets next to St Paul’s Cathedral, the route then heads down to Greenwich then back over the river towards Canary Wharf, onto Regent’s Canal and Victoria Park, before heading over to Oxford Street and Piccadilly. The next few miles will take Team Sarcoma through a historic array of landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. The final stretch will be via Southbank before crossing back over the Thames to Victoria Embankment, returning to our starting point and the atmospheric hub, this could be anytime between 2:30 and 6:30pm. There will be plenty of time to celebrate and relax with the rest of the team at the finish line.
If you don’t fancy the full marathon there is also the option to do a half marathon instead!
