Over 2,000 keen Challengers 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.

Our full 100km route heads upstream from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to historic Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at the 50km half way point. Then it's on past wonderful river-side scenery all the way to Henley - where a riverside celebration awaits after an unforgettable journey.

With some training and determination you'll be amazed at what you can achieve!
