We are to walking, what Parkrun is to runners. Following a run on Sunday’s we sometimes like to slow things down on a Sunday. Do you agree? Be a little more gentler to the body. And give ourselves an extra 30 mins in bed!
That’s why we launched Soulwalk. To connect with others. With nature. For you to bring the dog, the kids, just yourself. Whatever age, whatever ability. We welcome all.
It’s as simple as that. Pack for all weather, and join us from 9.30am for 3kms (or more). You can walk at whatever pace you want to. We’ll simply start you off, and you can meander or stride out. Talk to friends. Not talk. However you’re feeling. It’s okay with us.
About Soulwalk: Just one of the things we do here at Soulhub, the home of goodness. Founder Carmen Rendell, will be walking the British Isles coastline from 1 January (Sole2Soul) to raise awareness of walking for our mental and physical health. A walking therapist, Carmen will be walking from Weston super Mare (where Carmen was born, grew up with two brothers, sister, mum and dad, played some hockey, drank in the Cabot, bit of cello, and lived for 18 years before leaving for Loughborough Uni), going anti-clockwise around the coast. She will be joined by friends in villages and towns, hosting Soulwalks at 9.30am (Mostly on Sundays) along the way. To launch, she’s teamed up with Crabtree and Evelyn, to host 5 London Soulwalks for you to join:
Some walks will have added flavour. We held our first London series in Richmond Park on 20th October. Soulhubber Medicinal Herbalist Melinda McDougall shared with us her knowledge of the local plants in the park and how they could benefit our health. Lloyd Camp, Safari Guide shared stories from Africa on our Greenwich Park walk.
Crabtree and Evelyn are supporting the 5 London walks, gifting a mini-goodie bag. Bhuti, Richmond yoga studio gave our Richmond walkers, a free yoga session.
The walks are free. If you register with us, Crabtree & Evelyn you will be gifted the goodie bag. Otherwise just turn up at 9.30am.

‘An hours Soulwalk with Carmen, was simply the most wonderful experience. We combined our Soulwalk with the launch of a new coffee which was raising money for community projects. We were able to gentle and organically tell our story and the stories of our charity partners. The perfect opportunity to take a moment to connect with others, to be present and insert some much needed fresh air into our day. Thank you Carmen!’
