About your Wellness Walk

With two distances to choose from, there is something for everyone at Wellness Walk London Bridges.

If you’d like the classic 10 mile option, you’ll start at Battersea Park before criss-crossing 11 iconic bridges before finishing at Tower Bridge and Potters Fields Park.

If you’d like to try our 5 mile option, you’ll start at Potters Fields Park and criss-cross 4 iconic bridges, before finishing at Tower Bridge and back at Potters Fields Park.

Everyone will receive a well deserved medal at our Finisher’s Area.

By signing up to take part in a Wellness Walk you will be fundraising to support all those living with diabetes.
