Walk for the Animals 2013

Animal Aid’s 10th annual sponsored walk takes place on London’s Hampstead Heath on Saturday 13th July. The star of the walk this year is a gorgeous little terrier called Pudding, a dog used for badger-baiting until rescued by the RSPCA. Pudding now lives with one of Animal Aid’s supporters and she is the happiest, friendliest dog you can meet.
The walk is 10km (7 miles) in all, but you can go at your own pace, and it’s an enjoyable, relaxing and healthy event amongst like-minded people. If you would like to take part alongside Pudding, please email Mark Phillips [masked] or telephone[masked] ext 223 for your registration pack.

Meeting point:

I should be here at 12:30, the walk will start at 1:00 pm so plenty of time to chat. Please call when you arrive.

How to recognise me? I will be with my daughter who will probably sit in the blue baby carrier on my back. You can't miss us :)

On the day

REGISTRATION

Please arrive by 12.45pm at The Bandstand, Parliament Hill Fields, Hampstead Heath to register.

The registration desk opens at 12.30pm and the walk starts at 1pm.

CLOTHING

This is an outdoor event, so please dress appropriately. Remember to check the weather forecast before you leave.

THE WALK

This year there are two routes, the first is 4 laps of the 2.5km route, which takes you over Parliament Hill. The second is much shorter, flatter, one mile route, which is ideal for people if they can’t manage the hill

REFRESHMENTS

Vegan Campaigns will be on hand with delicious snacks and drinks for sale throughout the walk.

TOILETS

Public toilets are very close to the start of the walk.

TRANSPORT

Parking is limited, so we recommend public transport.  If you do decide to drive, there is a car park at the Lido and its about £4 for 2-4 hours. There is free parking on Highgate Road and neighbouring residential roads. The following buses take you straight to the Heath: nos 214, C2 and C11.  Kentish Town is the nearest tube and Gospel Oak is the closest main line station.

    Hi Everyone,
    For everyone who would like to meet before the walk I should be there 12:30 maybe even before. My telephone number is 07907 577971. If you just want to join the walk I'm sure we will be smiling to each other during the walk :)

    See you on Saturday,
    Beata

    PS. I guess you can recognise me without any problem because I will probably be barefoot with another enthusiast of barefoot walking :)

    Any idea how long the walk is likely to take Beata, also, I recall you saying you'll take Lili, is that right? There's the London Vegan Beer Fest on the same day, for anyone who fancies vegan beer and BBQ afterwards :-) http://londonveganbeerfest.eventbrite.com

      Richard, to march about 6 km it takes 1 hour, this walk is a little slower so I guess it would take at least 2 hours
