Take on the Thames Path Challenge and push yourself in uniquely beautiful scenery that’s steeped in history, and a superb backdrop for a festival of river-side challenge events . It’s 100km from Putney Bridge to Henley alongside Britain’s greatest river although quarter and half distance options are also available – most of the 4,000 challengers will Walk at their own pace, many will Jog parts, and some will Run the whole course – and all will have a special reason to push themselves. You can join as an individual or as a team, there’s half & quarter distance options, and however you take it your challenge will be a test of stamina & determination, with full support all the way, and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.
Or join the Challenge’s sister event instead – the ‘Thames Bridges Trek‘ – also starting out from Putney Bridge with a 25km walk through central London zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges with the best City views and finishing beyond Tower Bridge for a celebration finish.
With some training and determination anyone can conquer The Thames Path. So why not get in shape – and join a real challenge in 2018 for the Down’s Syndrome Association.
