The MoonWalk London 2013The world's only Power Walking Marathon returns for its 16th Birthday. The MoonWalk attracts 15,000 participants and raises money for Walk the Walk, a breast cancer charity that makes grants available to support medical research but one that also funds emotional and physical care to those who already have cancer. This year's theme has yet to be announced but you can expect the walkers to stride out in some outrageous outfits; wearing a colourful decorated bra has become de rigueur on the walk, so look out for the most flamboyant. Those that set out from Battersea Power Station at 11pm get a fantastic evening tour past London's architectural highlights as well as the satisfaction of raising money for charity.

 

About Battersea Power Station

This riverside power station, the masterpiece of architect Giles Gilbert Scott, Grade II listed Battersea Power Station has taken on an iconic status in the capital. With its huge frame and four white smoke-stacks (two of which were built in 1933, the remaining two in 1955) protruding into the London sky, the construction initially received protests from those who felt the building was too large and would be an eyesore.
