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 has even been voted one of the world's best urban treks!
More than 4,000 people 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. The 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.
The team is on hand to answer all your questions from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. Whether you’re after event specifics, training tips or fundraising advice, we’d love to hear from you.

How do I register to complete this challenge?
The challenge is run by Action Challenge and you should register directly with them. During registration you can choose to fundraise for Help for Heroes.

Where does my fundraising go?
Half of your fundraising target (dependent on the distance you choose) needs to be received by the Charity no later than eight weeks before the challenge. This covers the cost of your participation in the challenge.
Anything you fundraise over this amount is the money which Help for Heroes can use to provide direct, practical support to our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel and their loved ones, for life.
The Help for Heroes Events Team will work closely with you throughout your fundraising journey and share helpful tips and advice every step of the way. You will receive a comprehensive fundraising guide to help you get started, along with monthly fundraising ideas straight to your inbox!
It’s not just about sponsorship from friends – you can plan events throughout the build-up to your challenge to help boost your fundraising total.
