Which path will you choose?

This stunning challenge follows the much loved National Trail along England's greatest river, the Thames. The river meanders all the way from its source in the Cotswolds and into London, with the city section voted one of the world's best urban treks! You will pass villages, river cottages, locks, houseboats and stunning river scenes along the famous Thames Path Trail; a gem in our own backyard. 70% of the route is off road, following footpaths and bridleways.

This Challenge will require determination and focus as you make your way along your chosen distance! If you want to test your strength, endurance and unite with us against cancer... then this is the perfect challenge for you!

Choose your Distance

The Thames Path has lots to offer any Walker, with different distances to suit you... your challenge, your choice! We highly recommend the 100km 'All the Way' or the 50km challenge! From capital to countryside, this is a tough Challenge, but worth every step! 

If the 100km or 50km challenge is a step too far, there is also a choice of a 22-28km option too... the perfect step up from a Half Marathon!  

The full route starts at Putney Bridge, then upstream to leafy Kew, on to Richmond and through the locks at Teddington. Making your way past Hampton Court Palace and on to Runnymede, of Magna Carta fame, at 50km. Those taking on the 100km will continue onwards and walk beneath Windsor Castle, past some wonderful scenery in Eton and on to Henley, the Finish Line!
