The Thames Head Challenge is completely unique in concept but totally familiar in format as a one-day Charity Bike Ride.  Seeing the Thames from end2end, either as a Soloist or a Relay Team Rider, gives supporters a truly great event to take part in. It is an event which will be talked about for many months afterwards, by all those involved in the day.

    YOUR CHARITY PACKAGE
Our goal is to stage for your Charity an event which is not only immense fun for your Riders but, is a total success from a fundraising and PR viewpoint.  As Organisers, we can help you along the way with marketing assistance, plus media input in terms of promotional images, media copy and other marketing materials.

On every day leading up to the event, we are here and available to support your Charity to make the very most of this excellent fundraising opportunity!
 

Your Charity Package comprises:

•    A Charity Team Place [available for up to 4 Riders per Team]

•    The cost per Team Place is £399 [max ONE Team per Charity]
•    A Team can comprise 1, 2, 3 or 4 Riders 
 

NOTE:    Team Places can be secured by a DEPOSIT ONLY payment of £100
 

Your Charity will be: 
•    Identified as a Participating Charity in the Event
•    Given access to marketing images, video and promotional media copy
•    Included in promotional material shared with all media channels  

Additionally, your Charity will be invited to: 
•    Attend the START in Putney to support your own Riders
•    Be special guests of ours - the Organisers - in a celebration at the FINISH 

 

In summary, the benefits of participating include:

  • PR opportunities for your Charity and its activities

  • Boosted charity fundraising - potentially over a long period

  • Excellent ROI - typically, Riders in similar events raise over £500 each

  • We anticipate Charities will benefit by the involvement of the celebrity Riders
