London Marathon Walk

Join us for this year’s London Marathon Walk on 22nd September 2018, taking in some of the capital’s iconic sights and less-visited corners.

The route passes locations used in 26 films, from classics including Chariots of Fire and The Italian Job to Bond and Harry Potter films, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually, the Da Vinci Code … and a huge variety of other hits of the silver screen.

With some spots instantly-recognizable and others more obscure, we guarantee you will be hitting the pause button as you watch these films again – but you have to reach the end first!

The event is being run by discover adventure and you will be tackling the walk with other walkers from various different charities so you may make some new friends along the way as well as raising awareness of Batten disease. There is a full and half marathon option available.

The Full Marathon registration fee is £69. This will include a BDFA t-shirt, Experienced Discover Adventure leaders and support staff throughout to manage the event safely and enjoyably

The London to Paris Bike Ride

This is an awesome cycling challenge and is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe attracting hundreds of riders each year and raising thousands for charities nationwide. Whether you’re a regular cyclist or new to cycling, looking to participate as part of a group or a solo cyclist – this is the perfect charity cycle event for you.  You’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 308 miles from capital to capital.  The journey begins in London with the route taking you through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water you start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right!, you push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.

A spectacular finish awaits as you reach the home stretch up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, before reaching the piece de resistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks the finish line.  For more info, please click on the following link:
