Going the Distance – The Treasure Hunt

20 May 2018

Join #TeamSIA this spring for our fourth Going the Distance sponsored walk event in London. This year we are taking to the streets of London once again and we are excited to tell you about the new additions for 2018.


Sunday 20 May 2018 and enjoy the spring sunshine. Your late morning start time will be confirmed upon registration.



The event will start and finish at Victoria Embankment Gardens. The closest underground stations are Embankment, Charing Cross and Leicester Square. The nearest accessible London underground stations include Blackfriars and Westminster.



Going the Distance is a sponsored walk that individuals and families of all ages and abilities are invited to take part in. Whether part of your regular exercise routine, or a personal goal that you are working towards achieving, we are here to support you along the way. You can choose from a four or eight mile route which takes you waterside along the Thames and over famous London bridges, where you will loop back round, met by a medal at the finish line at Victoria Embankment Gardens and an enormous sense of accomplishment.

2018 will also see the launch of our first ever ‘Going the Distance Corporate Challenge’ where teams of five will go head to head to see who can complete the eight mile cause, and reach the finish line with the correct answers to a devilishy difficult version of the treasure hunt: without any help from our volunteers on the day!

All SIA corporate members can redeem free entry as a perk of their membership, and for non-members, teams of five can register for £40 – with no minimum fundraising target.


The route:

Each participant/team will get their own route map with volunteer marshals placed around both routes to cheer you along the way.

This year we are asking you to collect treasure along the way, (not the crown jewels) but the treasure we want you to collect is answers to the questions on your route map. Each individual/team will have questions on their map that they must answer on their Going the Distance adventure. If you answer all questions correctly, you will automatically, be entered in to our prize draw and the winner selected at random and crowned treasure hunt champion 2018.
