London Bridges 24 bridges Marathon

Trek Adventure

Get set for a unique challenge based around the grand central Bridges of the River Thames. 24 Bridges in a marathon distance...that's the challenge!


Welcome on board to the London 24 Bridges Challenge that offers you and your colleagues/friends a rather different kind of a trek. Get motivated, get active and get fit!

You will be marching as a group starting from Teddington. After you have had a breakfast bap and coffee to get you started we will head off on a maze of 24 iconic bridges (Hammersmith currently under repair) taking in some green spaces along the way. We will walk through Richmond, Kew, Chiswick, Hammersmith, Chelsea, Vauxhall, Lambeth and Westminster to finish at the one and only Tower bridge.

What is a Level 3.5 Trekking Challenge Like?

These challenges are either longer, higher, or span several days. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 12 hours trekking. In the case of a multi day trek, you can expect lower daily durations - but of course - the effort is sustained over a longer period. You need to be keen on physical exercise for these events, and to enjoy taking exercise, and to do it regularly. Longer duration long haul treks are likely to be easier in terms of the physical walking, however, you will need to be more resilient - due to simple living conditions - ie using same clothes for several days, lack of washing facilities, simple food, and maybe camping - this forms an integral part of the challenge.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.5 ‘Trek’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing very long walks in the countryside - 7 hours + . You should be doing regular exercise - possibly with some running. Your running speed will be around 10-11 minute miling, and you should be able to run a minimum of 4 to five miles. If you do not run, you should be concentrating on other types of exercise - but for longer periods of time (i.e. sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs.) - these other forms of exercise should be at a moderate to high level.

 

Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP. Please also ensure you notify us of any allergies or similar.

It requires stamina and good aerobic fitness - but good willpower will also come in handy! Failure to disclose medical conditions is a serious omission - that could have serious repercussions on any of our challenges.

 

Special Notes

You will be fully supported by experienced and qualified walking leaders as well as offering first aid support. Our leaders have a wide range of experience in the event and challenge sector so you wil be in good hands. They will keep you talking and motivated throughout!
