Join us for the 1st Chiltern Challenge in 2019 - our route follows the Chiltern Way, the historic Ridgeway trail which is one of the oldest roads in England, and the ancient Icknield Way, with rest stops enroute. Our full 100km route is a loop starting and finishing in Henley via Princes Risborough our half way base camp, here some will over night and take the challenge over 2 days, whilst others push on through the night.

The Full Challenge at 100km with over 1,800 metres climb - makes it a tough one! The 100km 2 Day Option allows you to rest at Half-Way in Princes Risborough, and to experience the whole route in daylight.

The 1st Quarter Challenge is ideal for novice challengers, and if you push on for the 1st Half - it's an Ultra Marathon distance - all the way back to Princes Risborough.
