London to Southend Trek
Our testing trekking experience starts in the heart of London and finishes by the sea. Choose either a 100k or 50k trek and help us walk all over heart disease. Our trek is urban and rural and ends in a truly unique way, at the end of the world's longest pier in Southend-on-Sea.
50 - 100KM
Charity Walk Course
There are three ways you can take on this challenge:
- 100k trek - walking day and night from Fulham Palace to Southend Pier
- 50k day trek - walking through the day from Fulham Palace to the CEME Innovation Centre, Rainham
- 50k night trek - walking through the night from CEME Innovation Centre, Rainham to Southend Pier Route
You must be over 16 to take part in this event. Under-18's must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
The 100k trek starts at Fulham Palace and hugs the river Thames heading out of London through the urban and industrial East End towards the open country.
You will be joined in Southend by those taking part in the 50k night trek. The trek is a great individual challenge but due to its testing nature and overnight sections of walking, it would make a great team event. Don’t worry if you aren’t part of a team, we’ll support you all of the way and you can always join up with other walkers for the tough sections of the route.
Event Location: Fulham Palace, Bishop's Avenue, London, SW6 6EA
