The Thames Bridges Trek

Starting in Putney, you'll zig zag across the Thames' bridges as you make your way from quiet waterways to London's bustling centre.. You'll cross 16 historic bridges along the way, including Albert Bridge and the Millennium, before finishing shortly after the iconic Tower Bridge.

The 25km route includes a mid-point stop at Kennington Oval, before venturing on with 2,000 other trekkers. We'll be waiting to celebrate with you at the finish line!
