Chiltern 50 Challenge
Take in the beautiful views of the Chiltern rolling hills and to tackle an Ultra!
Part of the Ultra Challenge Series, this will be the last event of the year (which gives you plenty of time to train)! Join either the shorter 25km or tackle the proper 50km. The looped route covers some of the best of the Chilterns countryside. You can walk, jog, or run along historic trails and over rolling hills.
Runners start at 06:00-07:00 and have to finish the course in sub 8 hours. Joggers and walkers depart from either 07:00-08:00 or 08:00-09:00 time slots. The course starts & finishes at the base camp in Henley. There will be celebratory BBQ & entertainment on Saturday night with extensive on-site camping & parking options.
You don't want to miss this! If you haven't already, you know you want to tick off "Complete an Ultra" from your bucketlist. You'll be passing through nature reserves, forests, and hills with great views - it's a route with real variety, and some wonderful scenery - and it's all easily accessible from London.
