The Thames Path Trail is unique - beautiful scenery that's steeped in history and a superb backdrop for a 'festival' of challenges!

Participants can take on the full 100km, a 50km, or a 25km section.With most of the year to fundraise and train, this is the biggest and most memorable journey from start to finish. This certainly makes for one of the best events of the series, as well as being the perfect event for teams!           

The Challenge starts near the Olympic Park and heads up the fascinating Lea Valley - past locks, parkland and wetlands. Whether you take on your challenge as a walk , jog, or run, you'll receive full support & great hospitality every step of the way and you can do it for a charity of your choice. There's a tremendous sense of achievement when the finish line is crossed and you reflect on how you went that extra mile!

Push yourself in 2017 - with some training and determination you'll be amazed at what you can achieve. Join us!

This exquisite challenge takes in some of England's finest scenery.

An Eastbourne start, up the infamous Beachy Head, on through the Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way. Brighton, Devils Dyke, stunning views, ups & downs, sunset & sunrise all lie ahead before the Cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view and the welcome finish line beyond.

England's largest island - surprisingly accessible from the mainland - and a perfect venue for an event that's becoming a highlight of the challenge calendar. The new start point in Chale means the stunning southern section is now done in full daylight.

There's 106km of coastal paths, ups & downs, stunning views, and highs & lows to experience before you cross the finish line. The journey will be unforgetable & the amazing achievement. It's time to push yourself - take on a real challenge and do something special in 2017.

One of the UK’s great endurance events. Most of the 3,000 challengers will walk it, some will jog parts, and nearly 500 will run it as a full on 100km ultra-marathon. All will have their own special reason to take on the Challenge, and whatever yours is, it will be a unique test of determination and stamina.

This Ultra Challenge is tough, but achievable - the journey is unforgettable and one of self discovery. You'll be supported all the way to the finish line, and it might be the most rewarding May bank Holiday weekend you've had for years!

Sponsorship and Fundraising

We recommend that you set up a fundraising page on our website. We now have a brilliant new function on our website to make the fundraising process even simpler.

Other popular fundraising websites take a percentage of the funds raised to cover administration costs, so we have developed our own fundraising pages. When your page is ready, you’ll be given a link to send to family and friends who can then sponsor you at the click of a button. And the good news
