Runners, joggers and walkers can embark on a riverside challenge to support Princess Alice Hospice later this year.

Following a scenic route alongside the River Thames, participants of the Thames Path Challenge can choose a distance of 25km, 50km or even 100km to tackle.

Starting at Putney Bridge on Saturday, September 13, the sponsored event will allow individuals and groups to take in the sights of London while raising money for the Esher hospice.

Emma Waggot, from Princess Alice Hospice’s fundraising team, said: "There’s a range of starting points and a route that will take you along the picturesque River Thames, past historic landmarks and beautiful scenery while raising valuable funds that will help the hospice to provide vital services to its patients."

To sign up, call the hospice fundraising team on 01372 461808 or email
