CHILTERN HILLS CHALLENGE
The Chiltern Hills provide an incredible backdrop for this 2 day trail running adventure! We cover around 18 miles each day. This will be amazing weekend of running, whether you are new to trails or a regular trail runner. It’s a great opportunity to discover new paths, increase distance and gain experience of multi-day events.
The event is not far from London, providing easy access by rail or road and a great way to escape and find your wild! As featured in Runner’s World – Top 9 Best Running Holidays in the UK 2019

The event will finish on Sunday afternoon around 3pm.
A deposit of £100 will be taken at the time of sign-up with the balance taken 6 weeks before the trip is due to start.
Leaving Tring station, you’ll be led as a small team through the country footpaths towards Bledlow. Since all our trips are guided, you can enjoy the scenery, focus on your running and style. The path winds along a quiet trail through deep woods, grassy ridges and steep hills as well as through hamlets mainly seen in period dramas. 18 miles later and a few hills behind you, it’s time to get to the accommodation for a hot shower, a few drinks and dinner. Unlike races we emphasise the social aspect of our events. There will be plenty of time to chat about your running past and ambitions with your team members. We will also be showing some inspirational films.
Following a good night sleep in a comfortable bed and a hot breakfast, you’ll be ready to take on the second day where we follow a different route back through Chiltern Hills. The trails undulate along grassy outlooks, through beech and oak woods and through more tiny English villages. 36 miles completed and you will be rewarded with a RtW tech shirt.
There are regular trains from London Euston which take around 40 minutes. There is also a pay and display car park should you wish to drive. There are lots of accommodation options in the Tring area to suit different budgets, please get in touch if you need more information.
