Every year in March, The Big Issue brings together 100s of people to take to the streets of London for a half-marathon night walk to help homeless people across the UK.
Take part in a Friday night with a difference and change the lives of hardworking Big Issue vendors on their journeys away from homelessness.
Starting in Central London you'll walk a unique half-marathon route and tour the capital at your own pace - seeing many famous landmarks as you go.
You'll hear personal insights from Big Issue vendors (past and present) to show how you're making a real difference to real lives and there'll be plenty of opportunity to socialise at the event hub and at the rest stops en route.
Lots of people sign up by themselves then form a group to walk with - so don't worry if you're on your own. Solo walkers have first arrival and the friendly volunteers help form teams.
This could be your challenge of this special year! Signing up now gives you plenty of time to prepare, train and fundraise.
“Incredible, inspiring, thought-provoking and a definite would-do-it-again event."
"I was blown away by the amazing service, support, and incredible volunteers."
"As a solo walker, it took no time at all to make friends with my fellow solitary ramblers, all terrific people, including Nigel, Suzanne and Christine."
Big Issue vendors are looking for opportunity to work for a better life and turn to The Big Issue at times of extreme poverty and utter personal crisis.

A 'hand up' and not a 'hand out'.
We believe in a ‘hand up and not a hand out’ and recognise that earning an income is a key step in a person’s journey towards stability and a better life. Achieving something for yourself is 100% more empowering than having it done for you.
We operate an open door policy and work with individuals who have made the first step to try and work themselves out of homelessness. Our charity work focuses on delivering brighter futures, boosting self esteem and helping vendors to reclaim their citizenship.
