Start Time
* Meet outside the BFI on South Bank, under Waterloo Bridge. * Note this walk is ONLY for those who have registered interest in Marshalling at the 2017 Capital Challenge, being held on Sat 1 April. * If you would like to help, please see the website ( or email the organiser (

* We'll all set off together at 8 o'clock but if you want to go at a faster pace than us leaders, both fresh from the antipodean summer so possibly not as walk-fit as some of you, please feel free to complete the route under Challenge Walk conditions but bring a copy of the Route Description and, if that's your style, the route on your GPS.
* But do bring the RD too as it has info about toilets, shops, points of interest, etc.
* Certificates will be presented to marshals completing the walk but, especially as the cafe at the Finish will also be closed, those of you who forge ahead may be on Walkers Honour to report your finishing time to me: I'm not certain I can get anyone to sit and wait for us there!
* Travel advice for getting home can be found at the end of the RD. And, given no finish line refreshments will be available, keep something in the tank for the additional final mile to Stratford: the local Pudding Mill DLR station (and Hackney Wick station) are closer but don't have any refreshments.

General Notes
* The cafe will NOT be open so pick up a coffee from Waterloo Station beforehand or wait until we pass through Paddington Station (thermos flasks are also available at your local store). * As sunset is still quite early (1746) we will want to keep breaks short so bring snacks, sandwiches etc for the day so we can keep it flexible according to weather and what's open. * We'll aim for a brisk pace but see also note above. * Bring a TORCH. It could be dark for the final stretch.
