Humanity Direct Chiltern Challenge (14th July): a 31-mile, one-day ultra marathon in the picture-perfect Chilterns in aid of funding life-changing operations for children in developing countries.

The ideal 50km introduction to ultra marathon running. Escape to the Chilterns, an area of outstanding natural beauty. What's more, it's FREE to run, if you commit to raising funds for Humanity Direct.

This popular race is especially good for those looking for a supportive event for their first ultra within easy reach of London.

As with all of our events, everything is taken care of at the Chiltern Challenge so you can focus on the experience! We’ll provide transfers from the station, free parking, free photos, changing facilities and heaps of tea and cake.

Entries will close one week before the event (or when full). A waitlist option will be available if the event becomes fully booked.

The well-marked circular route will start and finish at Princes Risborough School, incorporating four checkpoints, approximately 10km apart.

Using National Trails and Footpaths, there are clear signposts and post discs, as well as our signs and confidence tape. We'll also give you a handy map, designed to help on any tricky sections.
