Thames Path Challenge 2023


This incredible challenge starts at Putney Bridge in London and finishes in Henley.  There are a variety of distances available too from 10Km to 100Km. There is a 50Km route, a 25Km route and also a 10Km route around Henley itself.  More than 3,000 people take part in this challenge every year and the atmosphere is fantastic, as are the views along the way! England’s most famous river provides a fantastic backdrop for an unforgettable challenge.

The Route

The full 100Km route leaves from Putney Bridge and heads upstream to Henley along the famous River Thames Towpath. You will pass through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede and Windsor along the way with some wonderful scenery in between. The challenge finishes in Henley-on-Thames.  You can tackle the 100Km over one or two days. Alternatively, the route is split into two halves or three quarters – you can simply choose the section which appeals to you most!

Run 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery. Find out more about us here.
