Take on the 2022 Thames Path Challenge

Walk, jog or run the Thames Path Challenge on 10th and 11th September 2022. Choose your distance and the level of fundraising you’d like to commit to. Join #TeamChildrenwithCancerUK today and help us be there for children and families affected by childhood cancer.

Take on the Thames Path Challenge following England’s greatest river. Most will walk, many will jog, some will run, and all have special reasons to push themselves. The full Thames Path Challenge 100km route heads from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past wonderful historic scenery all the way to Henley. With half & quarter distance options – there’s a challenge for everyone.

Your challenge will be a test of spirit and determination. You’ll be supported all the way by our team, and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.

Children with Cancer UK are an official partner on this great challenge, and can offer you a 75% discount on your charity registration fee when you use code CWCUK
