Home Ultra Challenge Series – Thames Path Challenge

What is the Thames Path Challenge?

England’s greatest river provides a fantastic backdrop for an unforgettable challenge.

Over 3000 adventurers will join the Putney Bridge start, and the full 100 km route heads upstream all the way to Henley along the famous Thames Towpath. It’s through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede, and Windsor, with some wonderful historic scenery en-route to a riverside finish line.

With 50 km & 25 km distance options also available – plus the Thames Bridges Trek & Moonlight 10 through Central London – and the Sunday Henley 10K – there’s a Thames Path Challenge for everyone in 2022.

How do I sign up?

Sign up for the Thames Path Challenge via the Ultra Challenge website.

You can either choose:

Charity sponsorship – where you pay a small registration fee and fundraise for Launchpad (select us from the drop down menu in the registration options)


Mixed funding for charity – where you pay half of your registration fee, and fundraise a smaller amount for Launchpad

NB: You will be required to have raised 50% of your fundraising target eight weeks before the event as this covers the cost of your participation in the challenge.

How will I be supported as a member of #TeamLaunchpad?

We will be in touch with you after you have registered to support you every step of the way! We can offer you tips on training and lots of fundraising materials, and you’ll get a Launchpad t-shirt and goodies to say thank you for taking part on our behalf.

How will my fundraising help Launchpad?

Day in, day out, Launchpad helps people, couples and families like you in Reading who are homeless or at risk of losing their home – and only with your kind support can we continue this vital work. Every penny you raise when you take on this challenge helps us prevent homelessness in our town.

With the rising cost of living this year, people who are homeless or at risk of losing their home are left extremely vulnerable. By taking on the South Coast Challenge and raising vital funds to support Launchpad’s services, you will be making all the difference to people who are in desperate need of help.
