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 12hrs.
Be part of the challenge which will see hundreds of walkers attempt the course and fundraise for Prostate Cancer UK on 12 - 13 September 2015.
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!
We'll be there for you from the start with a dedicated challenge team.
We'll prepare you for the challenge with our newsletters and fundraising and training guides, support you throughout the challenge, and be on hand to celebrate with you as you complete this tough hike. We'll also send you a beautiful Prostate Cancer UK walking top!
"We were keen to sign up for the The Thames Path challenge and as veterans of the "Movember" Men's Health campaign we thought we would walk it to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK especially as, sadly, the statistics indicate that at least one of the guys in our football team will get prostate cancer.
There was a lot of camaraderie with walkers that you pass and spend time with - a real sense that you're all in it together raising money for a range of charites. The event is very well organised and there are plenty of interesting sites along the tow-path!
The feeling you get when you finish is one of joy and relief and a real sense that you have shared a unique experience together to achieve something for a worthy cause. So, we made it to the pub a little later than planned but that was possibly the best pint I've ever tasted."
