About the Thames Bridges Trek

Setting out from Putney Bridge the route takes you East towards the City, zig-zagging over 16 historic bridges – each with its own fascinating story, to a mid-point stop at The Oval for some snacks and drinks.

There will be a finish line celebration waiting for you in Southwark, just past the majestic Tower Bridge.

Event date: Saturday 11 September 2021.

Location: Bishop's Park, London.

Registration fee: Between £5 and £99.

Fundraising target: Between £119 and £595 (depending on the challenge) to support our work improving the lives of people with a learning disability.
