Following the legendary river, you can walk, jog or even run along a river which has shaped not only London but the United Kingdom. It is an event which will test your stamina and determination. You will be fully supported all the way, and rewarded with a huge sense of achievement and satisfaction.

Everyone will start at Putney Bridge, working your way past the historic Hampton Court Palace where people doing the 25K challenge will finish in the shadow of the historic palace. The 50K and 100K participants will continue on and pass the legendary Teddington studios before heading past Runnymede made famous by the Magna Carta and home to the finish line for the 50K participants. The 100K participants continue past more wonderful scenery and finish in Henley - the home of rowing.
