Take on 50km in the Chilterns
Join the end of season Chiltern 50 Challenge in September. The route follows the Thames to Henlry Bridge, then out into countryside on Shakespears Way, Icknield Way, and Chiltern Way with rest stops enroute. Our full 50km route, with over 900 metres of climb, is a loop starting aad finishing at Base Camp at Henley Showground - with a half way at Lewknor. If 25km is more your thing - you can do either half.
The Henley Base Camp will be the event hub, with Friday and Saturday evening camping options, showers and free parking. We'll have a celebration BBQ, bar and entertainment evening after the tough days' Challenge.
