More than 3,000 challengers will in September be taking on the main Thames Path Challenge following England's greatest river - most will be walking, many will jog, some will be running, and all will have a special reason to push themselves. The full 100km route heads upstream from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past wonderful scenery all the way to Henley.
The challenge will certainly be a challenge testing stamina & determination.
Two members of Green Park will be taking part in the challenge and we wish them all the best on their endeavour.
Andy Woolley from WOLF in Lime Square will be taking part in his biggest challenge to date in a bid to raise money for a great cause. Andy will be taking on the challenge by running, Jogging and Walking and if needs must crawling the distance through the night to get over the finish line. Cancer Research is Andy’s charity as he lost his Grandad and other family members to cancer, as well as having a health scare himself last year. After a couple of weeks of worry and stress Andy was finally given the all clear and was relieved that all the worry and stress was for nothing. However he is fully aware there are a lot of people out there who are not so lucky and need the support of charities like Cancer Research.
Michelle Mason, receptionist across the Green Park multi let buildings will be walking the challenge memory of her Grandad who she sadly lost six years ago. Macmillan were a huge help and support to Michelle’s Grandma during this time and we could not have asked for anything more from them.
Michelle is looking to push and better herself by doing the Thames Challenge and to make her Grandad proud with training over the next few months, ensuring she’ll be able to complete this day and night walk.
