Walk it, jog it or run it

The Thames Path Challenge stretches 100km from Putney Bridge to Henley alongside Britain’s greatest river - most of the 4,000 challengers will walk at their own pace, many will jog parts, and some will run the whole course – and all will have a special reason to push themselves. You can join as an individual or as a team, there’s half & quarter distance options, and however you take it your challenge will be a test of stamina & determination, with full support all the way, and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.

Or join the Challenge’s sister event instead - the 'Thames Bridges Trek' – also starting out from Putney Bridge with a 23km walk through central London zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges with the best City views and finishing beyond Tower Bridge for a celebration finish.

With some training and determination anyone can conquer The Thames Path.  So why not get in shape - and join a real challenge in 2017 for Animal Free Research UK.
