If you would like to receive more information or sign up for The Urban Amble please contact Joanna directly or via the book events form on the right.
The Urban Amble is organised by Better Bankside in partnership with The Bridge. This local charity helps run the weekly Monday lunchtime Bankside Speed Walkers group. The Bridge is the working name for The YWCA Central Club, a charitable organisation which aims to make a difference to the lives of women living or working in London.
The walk will take place at lunchtime on Thursday 12th September. You will be able to store your possessions securely during the event and will receive a free energy boosting snack and an Urban Amble t-shirt! You will have the option to engage in a gentle warm up session in Mint Street Park before setting off on the 5 or 10k circular route at 12.10pm. You will be able to choose whether you will be walking in a fast, medium or slow paced group or in your own workplace walking team before the event and will remain with the group for the entirety of the walk.
The carefully planned route will pass some of London’s most famous buildings and monuments and will go through beautiful parks and public gardens. You will make many new friends and feel a fantastic sense of camaraderie as you near the finish line. Bankside Speed Walks will be running free evening training walks in the run up to the event and The Bridge will be providing discounted memberships to all participants in training for The Urban Amble!
Finally, if we get enough participants we will be throwing a party to celebrate our achievements one evening in the week following the event. All participants will be invited to join us at this event where we will be sharing our walking stories and announcing our final fundraising total. Tell all your friends to sign up now!
We are currently looking for workplace ambassadors to help us promote The Urban Amble to businesses in Bankside. Please get in touch and we can provide you with an ambassador pack and all the help you need to recruit colleagues.
