Walk, jog or run along the picturesque, historic towpath of the Thames Path upstream & follow England's greatest river with wonderful scenery all the way.
Trek alongside England's greatest river through history
The Thames Path is unique, with beautiful scenery that's steeped in history, and a superb backdrop for a weekend of exhilarating challenges. Returning in September with over 5,000 fellow challengers, you'll follow England's greatest river - which meanders from its source in the Cotswolds to London.

This could be your challenge of this special year! Signing up now gives you plenty of time to prepare, train and fundraise.
