Thames Path Challenge

Follow England's greatest river from the source in the Cotswolds and on through London

Ultra Challenge Series
Details

The Thames Path Challenge follows England's greatest river as it meanders from its source in the Cotswolds and on through London. The city section was voted one of the world's best urban treks!

More than 4,000 challengers will take on the main Thames Path Challenge following England's greatest river - most will be walking, many will jog, some will be running, and all will have a special reason to push themselves. Our full 100km route heads upstream from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame, then on past wonderful scenery all the way to Henley.

As well as that feel-good-feeling of doing something for 'the blokes', here's just some of the things you can expect from the challenge:
