Get your kicks on and take part in this enjoyable and rewarding way to explore our capital city.

You'll have an early start at the event hub in Bloomsbury Square Garden. The first part of the route will take you towards the River Thames, heading over Blackfriars Bridge and the Millennium Bridge. You'll follow the Thames river until Tower Bridge, then head towards Bethnal Green and Brick Lane.

The journey will continue to take you past some of the city's most famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament. The final stretch will take you via Southbank, over the Thames and Victoria Embankment, before finishing off back in Bloomsbury Square Garden.

For more information, view the full challenge event details on the Discover Adventure website.

Walking amongst famous London landmarks on the big day was great motivation! I am really proud to have pushed myself so that first aid can help change outcomes in emergencies.
