About the challenge

The Thames Path Challenge 100km route heads from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past wonderful historic scenery all the way to Henley. With half & quarter distance options-there’s a challenge for everyone. Your challenge will be a test of spirit and determination. You’ll be supported all the way by a professional team, and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement
