Welcome to the Thames Challenge website.
This is my latest venture to raise money for Help for Heroes. It follows on from my Malvern Challenge events, which I started in 2009 and raised a total of £32,000 for this excellent charity. I am glad to say that another team has continued with the Malvern Challenge event and it is still going strong.
I first set up the Thames Challenge in 2011 and it raised £4,000. Family issues prevented further events but we decided to repeat the event in 2018 (see event information page), raising over £5,200.
Everyone enjoyed last year and we have decided to run the event again on Saturday 7th September 2019. We are planning a bigger and better event, which will raise a lot more for the charity.
This site is designed to give you an overview of the event, how to register, important safety information etc.
So, please either;

Or come along and support us on the day
More information to follow soon, inlcuding how to register.
Dave, Marina and the Thames Challenge team
