Challenge Date: 12/13th September 2020 


Take on the Thames Path Challenge following England's greatest river. Most will walk, many will jog, some will run, and all have special reasons to push themselves.

Our full Thames Path Challenge 100km route heads from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past wonderful historic scenery all the way to Henley. With half & quarter distance options - there's a challenge for everyone.

There's also the 'Thames Bridges Trek' - a 25km walk through the heart of London, zig-zagging over 16 famous bridges with the best views of the Capital's landmarks.

This event is suitable for participants of all abilities, with many options to choose from:

  • 100km Full Challenge
  • 100km Full Daylight Challenge
  • 50km 1st Half Challenge
  • 50km 2nd Half Challenge
  • 28km 1st Quarter Challenge
  • 22km 2nd Quarter Challenge
  • 28km 3rd Quarter Challenge
  • 22km 4th Quarter Challenge


Access Sport believe all young people should be able to experience the power of sport. However over the past few years the number of people on low incomes participating in sport has fallen nearly 50,000, causing a third of UK children being classified as obese or overweight, side-lining the poor and vulnerable. Your support fundraising and participating in the Thames Path Challenge makes a real difference in creating a level playing field, giving under-represented young people regardless of ability, gender, background or ethnicity, the chance to enhance their life prospects through sport.


Your challenge will be a test of spirit and determination. You'll be supported all the way by our team, and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.
