Walk & Wheels is a sponsored journey from The Pier Head to Otterspool.
It will be a lovely summer trip along the beautiful Liverpool Waterfront that's suitable for people with a wide variety of mobility needs. If you're unable to walk long distances, if you are a wheelchair user or need mobility support then we have ensured that there are accessible routes with varied distances to choose from. It’s not about the distance travelled, it’s about getting involved.
It’s a great way to raise money, but also a goal to aim for if you're looking to get more active.
You are welcome to walk, jog, run, cycle or scoot as long as you join us for a laugh on our regular comfort breaks along the way.
The distance from Pier Head to Otterspool is about 4½ miles (7½ km) in length and takes in the magnificent Pier Head buildings and the Albert Dock and other southern dock areas. We have 3 meeting points along the way and you can join us at any time
