Thames Path & Bridges Congratulations!

Congratulations to all our Thames Path & Bridges Challengers!

This weekend saw over 6,000 challengers take on strecthes of the Thames Path between Henley and Tower Bridge in what was an epic weekend of walking, running & jogging. We estimate that this year's event will raise over £1.5 million for over 400 different UK charities - and we congratulate each and every challenger for pushing themselves and achieving something incredible. 

As part of our Ultra Challenge Series the Thames Path marks the 7th and final event of the 2018 series, the event is a celebration of fitness, health, geography and London's most iconic geographical feature. Those who took on the challenge on are part of a growing community seeking to undertake an epic 'ultra' distance for a greater cause, a reason to get fit or simply for fun. 

2019 registration for both the Thames Path Challenge and Thames Bridges Trek is now live - please visit to find out more!
