Britain’s greatest river will be your backdrop as you join 4,000 other adventurers for this epic challenge. Form a team or go it alone, walk, jog sections or run the entire course that runs from Putney Bridge to Henley. You don’t have to tackle the whole 100k either, with 50k and 25k options on offer.

Alternatively, why not take on the Thames Bridges Trek. Also starting at Putney Bridge, this event takes you 25km through central London, zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges and enjoying the best City views.

Challenge cause image

With the support of fundraisers like you, last year we helped 10,324 people and households in London alone through our helpline and face-to-face services.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.

It was the most amazing experience you will have and the Shelter team will look after you very well.
