This challenge covers some of the best of the Chilterns countryside. You can Walk, Jog, or Run along historic trails and over rolling hills. Starting & finishing at the Base Camp in Henley-on-Thames, there’s a Saturday night celebration BBQ & entertainment with camping options. Choose from the full 50km challenge, or the 25km half distance.
