SUNDAY 23 MAY
This event has now passed. Congratulations to all who took part!
the Derby Walk
Join the 22 mile journey, starting at 9am in Knightsbridge, through to Elephant and Castle, traveling via the A24 through Clapham, Colliers Wood, Merton and on to Morden which will then lead the walk via Rose Hill and on to the Epsom Downs.
History of the walk
Many years ago thousands of people made it their annual pilgrimage to travel to Epsom Downs for Derby Day. The journey which would have been planned weeks in advance has crossed the minds of many who now embark on a much simpler journey to the Derby Festival.
The intrigue of the exhaustive journey of visitors in the 1700s sparked the beginning of the Derby Walk commencing two weeks before the Festival and raising money for charities. This year's walk marks the 11th anniversary.
