Take on the established Thames Path Challenge along the UK’s most famous river. Starting in bustling London at Putney Bridge you will follow the river in-land past historic, palatial residences and beautiful countryside. As you near the 50km mark Windsor will be in your sights as you head for Runnymede of Magna Carta fame, and onward to your finish line in Henley.
Push yourself further - 100km Full Challenge, with Half and Quarter options also available.
You’ll get full support and hospitality all the way, leaving you to focus on your challenge!

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 that Help for Heroes can use to provide lifelong support to our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, Veterans and their loved ones.
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 and family. You can plan events throughout the build-up to your challenge to help boost your fundraising total.
