Join us for Walky Talky 2022

We're getting the nation walking and talking while supporting people severely affected by mental illness.

Come and join us on 16 July for the Walky-Talky 2022 challenge around the beautiful City of London and raise much-needed funds for Rethink.

This 20km walk around one of the most famous capitals in the world is a must for all the family.  

We’ll be jumping back-and-forth across the Thames to ensure we soak up all the culture, atmosphere, and best vantage points.  From the Southbank, with its amazing arts, museums, and Shakespeare’s Globe to the cool skate-park, London Eye, and the beautiful yet poignant Covid Wall.

Whilst over on the Embankment, we walk around St Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London, and the stunning St Katherine’s Dock.  Walking across the most famous bridge in the world we’ll have great views of the iconic buildings, aptly nicknamed The Cheesegrater, The Boomerang, The Gerkin, and very appropriately, The Walky-Talky building!!

The circular walk takes approximately 4 hours, starting and finishing under Nelson’s watchful eye at Trafalgar Sq.   And like the London Marathon, we’ll be ending the route bypassing the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and as we make it up The Mall, passing through Admiralty Arch to complete the walk back to Trafalgar Sq, you’ll be tired, slightly weary but hugely satisfied, very proud of yourself and have memories that will last forever.

For taking part in this amazing challenge:

  • We will send you a free t-shirt for signing up as a way to say thank you for your support.
  • Fully stewarded event so you can enjoy the sights and enjoy the day.
  • On the day you will get a medal for completing the challenge.

Our team will be on hand to support all your fundraising activity and help you get over the line on the day.
