Event Description



Formally known as the Thames Trot the Thames Trail Ultra  is a 47 mile point to point ultra marathon running from Iffley, Oxfordshire to Henley on Thames.  A tough run along England’s largest river with ever changing scenery, beautiful houses and traditional rowing clubs.

This is a great event with everything from tarmac paths to muddy trails. We use the Thames Path and Ridgeway National Trails – don’t forget the words “National Trail” and not just read “Thames Path”!

This is an Ultra distance course that will always keep you interested and challenged.  A great end to the Ultra Running season.

The start is approximately 3 miles south of Oxford. From the Hotel there is a short run down to Iffley lock and after crossing the river the route takes the towpath through the picturesque towns and villages  to Henley On Thames.  The finish is next to the railway station which provides easy access to mainline services back to Oxford.

We are proud to be an Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc index race.



The race HQ is situated in the comfortable surroundings of the Hawkwell House Hotel OX4 4DZ. Hawkwell House Hotel


There is limited parking in Iffley, if you are driving to the start you will be directed to street parking areas in the vicinity.


For anyone travelling by train there is a courtesy shuttle bus from Oxford train station which is usually very popular, please let us know your rail travel arrangements to help us plan. Runners can park in the station car park provided they buy the return train ticket from the ticket office on the morning of the race.




Thames Trail  is a 47 mile point to point Ultra Marathon starting at the Hawkwell House Hotel  in Iffley and finishing at the Mill Meadows Park in Henley on Thames.  The route is a mix of country trails, riverside paths and roads predominately following the Thames Path and the Ridgeway National Trails
