1st – 11th July 2020

Distance: 6,318 miles
Fundraising target: £10,000

Physical running / walking events are not possible at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have fun outdoors during the summer.

XNRG is delighted to support Humanity Direct, a charity that funds life-changing and life-saving medical care for children in developing countries. Join the XNRG community in collectively walking or running 6,318 miles - that's the distance from Princes Risborough in Bucks (the start of our Chiltern Ultra) to Kampala, Uganda.

Why Uganda?

Humanity Direct works closely in Uganda to help children from some of the poorest backgrounds get access to life-changing medical operations, as well as supporting an eye-testing and spectacles programme.

Over the 11 days, every person who enters this event and links their Strava will contribute to our efforts to really go that distance from Princes Risborough to Kampala. Whether you clock one mile, 10 miles, 100 miles - or more! - every step you take a record during those 11 days will help us along our 6318-mile journey.

It's completely free to enter, but we hope you'll either donate at the point of entry and / or fundraise to help us also reach our target of £10,000.

How it works

Anyone can take part: young or old, wherever you are (providing you're following the current Covid-19 guidance in your country). This is a challenge the whole family can get involved in - help us on our epic 6318-mile virtual journey through Europe and the Middle East into Africa.
