England’s greatest river provides a fantastic backdrop for an unforgettable challenge. Over 3,000 adventurers will join the Putney Bridge start, and the full 100km route heads upstream all the way to Henley along the famous Thames Towpath.

The route winds through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede and Windsor, with some wonderful historic scenery en route to a riverside finish line.

You’ll get full support and hospitality all the way – and with 50km and 25km distance options also available – there’s a Thames Path Challenge for everyone in 2022.

This is a fun and rewarding challenge with full support and hospitality included, leaving you to focus on your distance!
