The Thames Path Challenge
Published by Thames Rockets 2854 days ago
From 12-13 September 2015 the Thames path trail will become the route of endurance race the Thames Path Challenge. The Thames Path Trail is unique - competitors will be able to enjoy beautiful scenery that's steeped in history, and a superb backdrop for the weekend's festival of challenges! Across the weekend, over 4,000 challengers will take on the Thames Path Challenge. Competitors will follow England's greatest river - which meanders from its source in the Cotswolds and on through London, with the city section voted one of the world's best urban treks. The full route heads upstream from Putney Bridge to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past some wonderful scenery to Henley. There are options to take on the full 100km, a 50km half, or a 25km section - in aid of a charity of your choice. Most challengers will walk it, some will jog parts, and others will run the whole 100km course! Back for its 4th year, the Thames Path Challenge is not just any race - it's a unique test of determination and an unforgettable journey, and best of all it takes place on the banks of the Thames, a river the London RIB Voyages team is particularly partial to! If you want to push yourself this September you can sign up to walk, jog or run the full 100km, a 50km half, or a 25km section here. We'll see you at the finish line!
