About the MoonWalk

The MoonWalk has been a fixture in London since 1998 and last year over 15,000 participants took part raising over £8 million for charity. The start and finish is at Clapham Common with the route taking in many of London's top sites including the Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge and the London Eye.

Each year The MoonWalk has a different theme and this year the theme is 'Saturday night at the Movies' so competitors are encouraged to pick their favourite film star.

Competitors will be hoping for better weather than in 2014 when wind and rain accompanied them through the streets of London. So, whether you are participating in the race or going along to support the walkers, Check the London weather forecast forecast before setting off.
