About the event

The first London Winter Wander took place on Sunday 3rd February 2019. Thanks to everybody who took part!

The Wander returns this year on Sunday 9th February.

The London Winter Wander is a new 60-90 minute walking event, starting from multiple locations around the capital, with an incredible finish at Trafalgar Square.  Absolutely everybody is welcome to take part, as the walk is perfect for all ages* and abilities, with friendly guides leading the way. At the finish line walkers will receive a special bespoke version of the highly regarded Cancer Research UK London Winter Run medal, and a hug from Blizzard (our iconic penguin mascot!).

So don’t hibernate this winter, join us to keep moving and help others socialise during this very special walk
