OMS Thames Path Challenge

Join our OMS team for the Thames Path Challenge as we walk along the UK’s most famous river to raise awareness of Overcoming MS!

OMS thames path challenge

Each year we choose a main fundraising event to raise the profile of Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS). You may remember that last year we put together a team who completed the 24 Peak Challenge, scaling a total of 24 peaks in the Lake District in a target hiking time of 24 hours.

This year we will be taking part in the iconic Thames Path Challenge and we’d love for you to join in the fun!

The team will be led by CEO Gary McMahon and our Chair of Trustees, Linda Bloom and will set off from Putney in West London on Saturday the 8th of September 2018. From there they’ll trek 50 km along the scenic riverbank to the birthplace of the Magna Carta in Runnymede.

For those who fancy even more of a challenge, you can continue your journey on Sunday the 9th of September for another 50 km to the riverside town of Henley-on-Thames.

Those wanting a slightly shorter route can join us for the first 25 km from Putney to Hurst Park, Hampton Court.

Whatever challenge length you complete you, will be supported all the way, with a fundraising pack and OMS t-shirt before the event and plenty of support on the day, not to mention food and drink to keep your energy levels up.

It doesn’t matter whether you fancy the sound of doing 100 km or 50 km or whether you would be more comfortable with the 25 km. We would love to get as many OMSers as we can to join the team for what promises to be a fun-filled event and an amazing opportunity to raise as much as we can to support the MS community!
