Why Samaritans need your support
We know that life can sometimes be incredibly tough. Thanks to the dedication of more than 20,000 volunteers, Samaritans can be there for anyone, whatever they are going through and whenever they are struggling to cope. We’re also at the heart of local communities, working with schools, workplaces, railways, prisons and hospitals to offer training and support, preventing suicide and helping people turn their lives around.
Our life-saving work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our event participants.
About the challenge
Take on this challenging one-day event and conquer a marathon or half marathon distance in support of Samaritans. This walk takes in some of the capital’s iconic sights and well-known film locations you might recognise from movies like Harry Potter, James Bond, or Bridget Jones’s Diary. It's an early morning start as you set off from the atmospheric event hub, beginning through peaceful parks and alongside waterways, passing iconic landmarks including the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye as you'll walk through the historic heart of the city.
Marathon Walk London is organised by our event partners, Discover Adventure. Find out more about the event here.
