The Olympic Torch relay route will be taking the same path through Henley in the final mile of the Walking for MileS Half Marathon on September 9th.
The Torch will arrive in Northfield End having travelled early in the morning from Walli...ngford, Crowmarsh Gifford and Nettlebed. Starting at just after 9am on July 10th the torch will be carried by Torchbearers along New Street and Thameside to The River and Rowing Museum, on Mill Meadows.
From the Museum it will be transported by rowing boat crewed with members from various local rowing clubs and Sir Steve Redgrave along the Thames to Leander Club. The Flame and crew will pass Phyllis Court and paddle over a small part of the historic 1908 & 1948 Olympic rowing course. From Leander the Torch will be transferred back onto the bus and is scheduled to leave Henley just before 10am.
The museum is the venue for all the Walking for MileS event taking place on Sunday, September 9th and although we cannot promise you the Olympic Torch, or Sir Steve Redgrave, we can offer you a great day out and some fantastic scenery with a half price entry into the museum after your challenge.
