Could you join the SCMSTC team to take part in the first section of The Thames Path Challenge? It’s a 25km (15.5mile) walk suitable for able bodied and wheelchair users with just a little help from a friend!
The Thames Path is the only long distance path to follow a river for most of its length. Our route begins at Bishop’s Park, next to Putney Bridge, and on through leafy Kew and Richmond past the last non-tidal lock at Teddington, finishing at Hurst Park near the Royal palace of Hampton Court.
