Walk, jog or run the Thames Path Challenge and take on 25, 50 or 100km along the stunning Thames Path.

The Thames Path is unique, with beautiful scenery that's steeped in history and a superb backdrop for a weekend of exhilarating challenges.

Most challengers will walk it at their own pace, quite a few will jog parts, and some will run the whole course. However you take it on, you'll get full support and great hospitality all the way to the finish line.

Join our team and choose the distance that best suits you:

100km: To take on the full distance there will be an registration fee of £60 with a minimum sponsorship pledge of £425

2 day 100km: Take on the 100km for £60 with a minimum pledge of £425 - but you can take your time and book your own stay at a b&b or hotel or even spend the night at home if you're local.

50km: Take on the 50km route for £45 with a minimum sponsorship pledge of £275

25km: Take on the 25km route for £30 with a minimum sponsorship pledge of £150

N.B. You'll need to have raised 50% of your sponsorship target 6 weeks before the event to confirm your place. But don't worry, we've got loads of  fundraising tips and support to help you achieve this.

If you want to take on the ultimate test of determination, you wont be alone and there are numerous ways you will be supported on your journey:

  • Free massage, hot meals, drinks & snacks en-route
  • Finishers medal, T shirt, glass of bubbly!
  • Relay option available – team of 4, with each taking on ~25km

Our supporters fund over half of the research done in the UK - collectively we are saving more lives everyday.
