Winter walk

Action Challenge has announced the postponement of the Winter Walk, which was scheduled to take place over two days on 27 and 28 February 2021. It will now take place on just one day, 27 March 2021.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has chosen to run for Battersea and raise vital funds for our dogs and cats. We’re incredibly grateful for your support. Battersea relies upon donations to raise the vital funds needed to keep our centres running, and now, more than ever, we need the continued support of the public to ensure we can continue to be here for every dog and cat.

Dig out your walking boots and wrap up warm to take on the Winter Walk for rescue dogs and cats. This COVID-secure event gives you the opportunity to stretch your legs and get active whilst taking in the wonders of the Capital’s major landmarks, all whilst helping our animals to get the second chance they deserve.

You have the option of two different distances (half or full marathon) and start times will be staggered over the 2 days.
