Booking for this walk is now closed but you can follow the route to do the walk on your own.
Wherever you are, we invite you to make a Mandala between 12-27 September and share with us using #T100Calling or in our Facebook group.
Today, the mandala theme is Imagination our Nation! Creativity, wellbeing and mindfulness can make dreams come true!
We ask you to have fun and help us to think about what other materials we could use for mandalas by making your own, sharing with us the things that matter to you.
Download your free Mandala Activity Pack here for inspiration.

You need to choose walks within your capabilities; especially if walking in a self-directed manner. If walking with us, our walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes, especially unsupervised. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Thurrock 100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
What to take
Be prepared! Face masks are advisable if you wish to use public toilets and essential if you wish to use local shops or are travelling via public transport.
Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!
Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home. Make sure you bring a packed lunch, if necessary, and plenty to drink.
