CRY Heart of London Bridges Walk – 9th July 2017 – Registration NOW OPEN!

Bridges Walk 2015-141

Join CRY on 9th July 2017 for the 11th annual CRY Heart of London Bridges Walk. This event offers the opportunity to show support for CRY, remember young people, raise funds and help raise awareness of young sudden cardiac death. In 2016, over 1,200 people took part in the walk, helping us to raise over £69,000.

When and where is it?

Sunday 9th July. Register from 9.30am at Potters Fields Park. The walk will start from here at 11.00am and end at Hays Galleria, near London Bridge. The route crosses 6 Thames bridges and includes great views of at least 12 of London’s famous landmarks, representing the 12 young sudden cardiac deaths that occur each week in the UK. Some of these landmarks include, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Southwark Cathedral, the Tower of London, City Hall and HMS Belfast.

How long is the walk?

10km (approx 6 miles). As a guide, the route should take about 2.5-3 hours at an average walking pace. There is also the option of a shorter buggy/wheelchair-friendly route.

How much does it cost to enter?

In advance: Adult = £12

On the day: Adult = £15.

Children 16 and under = free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Your entry fee purely goes towards the cost of running the event safely.

Who can take part?

Anyone with a moderate level of fitness. All ages are welcome but those aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Do I have to be in a team?

No. Many people will be taking part on their own. Individual walkers will leave first as a group, so there will be an opportunity to meet others who are walking on their own. If you would like to take part as a team, why not get a group of friends, colleagues or family together.

Anything else I need to know?

Drinks will be available at the start, along the way and at the end. Bridges Walk T-shirts will be provided to walkers in advance.

How can I enter?
