What Global Goal is she supporting?
How far will she run?
- THE river THAT survived -
60 years ago Thames river was declared “biologically dead”. News reports from that time describe it as a vast, foul-smelling drain. The river was devoid of oxygen, making any form of life impossible.

The grand finale
My thoughts on running the length of the thames
- join the last 6 km of the 6 river run -
I will be finishing my 1,688km long 6 River Run expedition in central London on Sunday, 30th of April.
It will be hugely meaningful to me if you come down and join me for the last 6km of the run.
Anyone and everyone is welcome, whether you are a walker, jogger, runner or a mom with a stroller. The more the merrier! I'm not running fast. In fact, my run has now become more of a shuffle. :)
After the run, there will be a flag signing ceremony after which we’ll proceed to Horniman Pub at Hays Galleria for celebratory drinks. It's stumbling distance from the finish line.
It will be a massive celebration of what we have achieved together over the past 6 weeks - I could not have done this without your support.
If you don't want to join for the run, you're welcome to join for the flag signing ceremony or drinks afterwards.
When & where?
Meet 10:45am at the North side of the Millennium Foot Bridge. The run will start at 11am sharp. Expected duration of the run: 60- 80mins.
The 6km route
We will start at the North side of Millennium Foot Bridge, following the Thames River to Westminster Bridge, where we will cross to the South Bank and finish at the Scoop, beside Tower Bridge.
What to bring?
* Wear a blue shirt for water
* Energy and high spirits
* Fully charged phone for photos
* A few bob for a celebratory beer
The flag signing ceremony will take place after the run on The Scoop, around 12h15 / 12h30. The drinks will start around 13h00 at Horniman Pub.
