Trek across the Capital
Trek across the Capital taking in unrivalled views of the skyline, and historic landmarks. Setting out from the Putney Bridge you'll head East towards the City, zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges – each with its own fascinating story. Next up is a rest stop near Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, before reaching the spectacular Tower Bridge and completing your challenge at Southwark Park. It’s a party style finish line, and a great way to enjoy a weekend in London!
Your entry includes a range of free food & drink at regular rest stops, and support from medics, marshals and massage teams. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a special medal to celebrate your achievement. As we are an ‘Official Charity Partner’ - sign up & commit to fundraise for us!

Why support Independent Age?
The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.
The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.
By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.
How will Independent Age support you?
You’ll receive fantastic support from our friendly team from the moment you sign up until you cross that finish line.
We’ll provide you with:
• A free Independent Age technical running vest to wear on race day
• A well-deserved certificate, totalling the amazing amount you raise for us
• Fundraising and training support from our dedicated Events team
