**NOW CLOSED for 2023 | Information and prices below all relate to 2023**

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.

With different distances to suit you... 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 ideal step up from a Half Marathon!
