50km Race - TEAM EVENT
Donate to Race! A Unique Opportunity with XNRG's Humanity Direct Amersham Ultra
The XNRG Amersham Ultra is the first of a series of three 50km trail ultramarathons over different routes around the stunning Chilterns.
This year we are also offering a team event in addition to the 50km Ultra and 25km option
We welcome everyone from walkers (choose the early start at 8am) through to the speedsters who can choose either a 9am or 10am start time.
These are popular events - nearly 1 in 4 entrants are repeat runners or walkers at this race and 40% of those entering the Amersham 50km have run at least one of the others in the series in the past two years.
XNRG are once again partnering with Humanity Direct - the charity funding vital operations for little children on 2th March 2024. XNRG offer a unique chance to get a place on an amazing one day ultra for FREE if you fundraise for a Humanity Direct patient, or donate the entry fee.
The Team Event
This year we are offering the chance for you to compete in the Ultra as part of a team consisting of up to 5 members. It's up to you which part of the course each team member will cover but note that you can only hand over at the standard ultra checkpoints and also that it is your responsibility to transport your team members to their handover points.
You will enter on behalf of your team and we'll ask you for the names and other basic information of your fellow team members. You can make changes to your team up until close to the event. Our usual cancellation/deferral rules apply but requesting either will be on behalf of your entire team.
So, how does it work?It's simple. Instead of charging an entry fee for the one day ultra marathon, XNRG ask you to donate the same amount to fund a vital operation - or, if you prefer, you can start a fundraising page instead and raise as much as you can, with a minimum of the price of entry.
Places for this event go fast! We give people a special opportunity to enter to run or walk 31 stunning miles of Chiltern Hills for FREE if you sign up to raise some money for patients.
Alternatively, donate your entry fee – all the money will go to an operation to save or vitally improve a little child’s life, and you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself to do something amazing in 2023.
Why we do itEach year Humanity Direct raises significnt funds through the three Humanity Direct Ultras, helping fund life-saving and life-changing operations for many underpriviledged children and we are hoping to help even more in 2024
100% of donations go to children’s operations in Africa with Humanity Direct
