During this time, we are monitoring the status of any changes to event dates, and are updating our website to reflect these as regularly as we can. Please also keep an eye on the event organiser’s website with regards to the status of your challenge. From all of us in the fundraising team here at Unicef, thank you for your continued support.


Covid-19 is at the front of all our minds. With the help of supporters like you, Unicef are providing gloves, masks and other vital supplies to protect children and families. Through the pandemic, we will still continue to be there for children with life-saving food, vaccines, clean water and protection from wars. Your support means we are able to continue our vital work, thank you.


Why choose the Thames Path Challenge?

The event is a unique endurance running challenge along the Thames Path Trail. Runners can choose to do the full 100km ultra marathon course, a 72km route, 50km route, or the 25km route.

Why run it for Unicef?

Your fundraising through the Thames Path Challenge can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world.

Did you know that £500 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 22 malnourished children back to health?

Got your own place?

If you’ve already got your own place in the Thames Path Challenge, we’d love for you to fundraise for us. There is no minimum fundraising commitment; we would only ask you to raise what you can.
