Thames Path Challenge

Choose your distance - choose your challenge!

A true test of stamina and determination, the Thames Path Challenge is no ordinary charity walk.

Back for its fourth year, you can take on 100km, 50km or 25km as a walk, jog, or run, with a relay option open to teams also!

  • Walk it - at your own pace - 24 + hours
  • Jog it - run a bit, walk when it suits you!
  • Run it - fully supported 'Ultra Marathon'
  • Varied 100km route
  • Join as an individual or as a team
  • 1st & 2nd Half Challenge options available
  • Four 25km Quarter Challenge Options
  • Free hot meals, drinks & snacks en route
  • Pace walkers, physios, massage, medics 

Perfect to enter as a team of friends, family or colleagues. You can also join as an individual, fully supported by our team.

It's not just a challenge - it's an unforgettable journey! Starting in London the path will take you through some of the most historic and picturesque towns in southern England, finishing either in beautiful Henley-on-Thames 100km later, or Runnymead if you opt for 50km.
