Spring Slow: Greenwich – Seasonal Slow Marathon

CC-BY-NC: Andrew Stuck

In 2020 we are running four Seasonal Slow marathons around the boundary of the Royal Borough of Greenwich which quite remarkably is almost the exact distance of the marathon. The idea is to observe changes in our surroundings and to explore areas of London which some may regard as off the beaten track.

We would like to invite you to join our Spring Slow Seasonal Slow marathon over the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th April. You can sign up to do a half marathon on either Saturday or Sunday or be bold and sign up for the whole 27+miles!

The route we have devised honours the borough boundary as best we could, but to save walking up the centre of the Thames or along the cuttings of the railway or A2, we deviate a little. A group of 30 Seasonal Slow Marathon pioneers tested out the route over a weekend at the end of January on a Winter Slow, and they recommended slight changes in the route, the pace and potential stopping points. Back in January we had less daylight and it was cold, so we anticipate that elements of the walk will differ in April – come along and find out.
