Second stage of the 4-day Thames Challenge, which can be done as a single one-day Ultra. 66 miles from the Ferryman Inn at Bablock Hythe, through Oxfordshire, much of the route following the Thames Path. Competitors of the Thames Challenge & the Cotswold Ultra, must arrive at Kemble Station for registration and equipment checks.
From the Ferryman Inn at Bablock Hythe, the path leaves the river here for a while, returning at Skinners Weir and along to Pinkhill Weir. Between Wytham Great Wood and the Thames, the path leads on to Oxfords edge, the spectacular Sandford Weir and then Culham and Cholsey.
A departure from the river bank brings us through Moulsford, but soon returns, going past Streatley and Whitchurch-on-Thames. A short deviation through the town of Purley Park, past Tilehurst, Reading, finally arriving at Hurley Caravan & Camping which is Camp-Site Two for Thames Challenge competitors, or the conclusion of The Oxford Ultra.
