There are several Thames Path runs each year including several ultra-marathon options like the TP100, but the T184 from T-Series is the only one that covers the entirety of the 184mile path.
Starting at the Thames Barrier in central London the route follows the (mostly) well signposted route all the way to the great river’s source, by this point barely a trickle, at Thames Head in the heart of the Cotswold. As if the length alone weren’t tough enough this is a self-supported event meaning that all competitors must carry everything they will need – with the exception of water collected via seven checkpoints – including tent/bivvy and a full food count. Oh, and there’s also an 80hout cut-off…
T-Series always put on a good show and the T184 has gained a great reputation over the last few years. There’s a good balance here between being self-reliant and having the backup (including GPS tracking) of an experienced race team. New for 2016 is the option for both team and relay entry; opening up the mighty T184 to a wider field of have-a-go heroes.
Solo entry fee is, appropriately, £184 with varies fee ranges for teams of 2-4 or relays of 2-8 runners. Further details of the T184, including online entry, at tseriesracing.com
