Starting close to Putney Bridge, this is an epic endurance walk against the clock following the unique Thames Path National Trail.
The ultimate Thames Path Challenge gives you the option of a 100km route to Henley in an attempt to complete the challenge within 24hrs as well as the 50km option with a target time of under 12 hours.
Across the weekend of 10/1 September 2016, over 4,000 challengers will take on the main Thames Path Challenge. You'll follow England's greatest river - which meanders from its source in the Cotswolds to London. Our full 100km route heads upstream from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past some wonderful scenery all the way to Henley.
Which ever distance you choose, and however you take it on, your challenge will be a test of stamina & determination and will be rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.
You will be fully supported along the way. There are hot food stops at 50km, 75km and 100km and there will be pace walkers, medics and physios to help you out. You can register to the challenge as a team of between 2 and 6 persons or as an individual and meet fellow trekkers along the way. It will be a weekend to remember!
