The Thames Path runs from the source of the River Thames in Kemble, Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier in Charlton, London. A distance of 184 miles.
In September 2019, Mark (Sport for Africa director), ran the entire length of the trail in five days to promote awareness of the mission of Sport for Africa and raise funds for the initial 'Seeds for Sport' pilot.
