EVENT INFORMATION

The London Irish Walk asks you to walk/run at least 50 miles between your chosen start date and the 17th March. 50 miles is the minimum, so be as ambitious as you like! Together, we are setting a target of walking/running 50,000 miles (100 million steps!) and raising £25,000. You simply sign up, set your targets for steps and sponsorship, let your people know, and get going!

It couldn’t be easier to join us! You can register here by clicking the ‘Start Fundraising’ orange button.

There’s no registration fee! We just ask you to raise what you can but we do suggest a minimum target of £150. If your team or company would like to sign up with a group target this is also a possibility.

Please reach out to the events team at walk@londonirishcentre.org if your company or team would like to get involved.

You can take part in The London Irish Walk by signing up here and committing to walking 50 miles between your chosen start date and the 17th March (St. Patrick’s Day) where you want, when you want.

Whether you want to take it slow and steady, or hit your self-set step target in one month, it’s totally up to you.

With current Covid lockdown in the UK we are not able to meet together but we will meet online by joining our online community. Join our private Facebook Group where you can share tips, fundraising advice, and plenty of photos!
