    Story

    Over the weekend of July 17th-18th 2021 we (Mark, Brad, Paul and Chris) will make our way down to Kemble in Gloucestershire. Why…? This is the beginning of the great River Thames in London. Although the river is underground at this point, we will make our way a few miles east to Lechlade - the uppermost navigable part of the River Thames.

    And here is all starts….from this point we intend to kayak to Central London, along almost 160 miles of river, passing through 8 Counties, around or even over 45 locks and under 130 bridges. A challenge which is usually achieved in around 6 - 8 days. We intend to do it in just 4 days.

    Once we get to London and grab some selfies beside a few landmarks, we will leave our kayaks and meet up with some other friends at GOSH – Great Ormond Street Hospital, and from there depart London on our bikes and cycle all the way home, back to Grantham in Lincolnshire… approx. 150 miles.

    We hope that this bike section can be done in conjunction with The Naomi Fund, an amazing charity event that runs every 2 years.

    All the finer details will be posted on our website (www.thelongwayback.co.uk ) and Facebook page as things develop, but rest assured there will be tears, tears of laughter, a few shenanigans, pain and much more along the way. We will engage our followers and supporters as much as possible as this gathers momentum, so stay tuned as we get stuck in.

    This will be the toughest thing both physically and mentally the four of us have ever done and we promise it will be EPIC!
