The route of The Marsden March

Marsden March route map

The 14-mile walk starts at The Royal Marsden’s hospital in Chelsea and finishes at the hospital in Sutton. The 5-mile walk starts in King George’s Playing Fields and follows the last five miles of the route.

From The Royal Marsden in Chelsea, the walk proceeds along Fulham Road and down to Putney High Street. From here it heads to Wimbledon Common, then on to Raynes Park station and down to King George's Playing Fields. After crossing Nonsuch Park it carries on to Cheam and Belmont before finally arriving for a party at The Royal Marsden's hospital in Sutton.

The exact route will be available on the day.
