Join ellenor at our hugely popular Sponsored Walkathon, a challenging 26.2 mile walk in support of families facing terminal illness. Starting at the picturesque Tower of London, walkers will cross the iconic Tower Bridge and head towards Greenwhich before then making their way into Kent and towards the finish at ellenor, Coldharbour Road.

This is not a challenge to be sniffed at, the route can be tough and undulating in places, so don't think it'll be a walk in the park.
