Walk, jog or run along the Thames Path on this endurance charity challenge
The Thames Path Challenge is a unique endurance event along the historic Thames Path Trail, from Putney Bridge to Henley.
Take the walk at your own pace or up the challenge and aim to finish in less than 24 hours.
The route is fully supported with pace walkers, marshals, medics, masseurs. Food and drink is also available on the route.
Every mile you trek and every penny you raise will help us be there when a child needs us. Together we can rebuild children's lives and prevent abuse from ruining any more.
