Over 2,000 Challengers will take on the main Thames Path Challenge following England’s greatest river – most will be walk, many will jog, some will run, and all have a special reason to push themselves.

England’s greatest river provides a fantastic backdrop for an unforgettable challenge. Over 3000 adventurers will join the Putney Bridge start, and the full 100 km route heads upstream all the way to Henley along the famous Thames Towpath. It’s through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede, and Windsor, with some wonderful historic scenery en-route to a riverside finish line. You’ll get full support & hospitality all the way – and with half, quarter, & 10 km distance options also available – there’s a Thames Path Challenge for everyone!
