Join us on the Chiltern Hills Challenge, covering 36 miles/58km over 2 days, and enjoy an amazing weekend of running in the beautiful English rolling countryside, just 30 minutes north west of London.

Whether you are beginner trail runner or a veteran, you can join the event.  Our qualified Run Leaders will show you the way, so you can just enjoy the natural beauty of this region and focus on your running style along the way.

The itinerary takes you on foothpaths on a stunning location, winding along a quiet trail through deep forests, ancient hamlets, grassy ridges and steep hills, with an ascent of about 1000m.

We will meet at Tring station on Saturday morning and you will be running as a small team through the countryside towards Bledlow. You will just run and enjoy the gorgeous scenery, focusing on your style, as our Run Leaders will be showing you the way.

This trail running weekend is also a great opportunity to see how you would do on a more mountainous running challenge in the Alps, for instance.

After leaving a few hills behind, covering 18 miles on the first day, it will be time to relax as we get to the accommodation. Yo will have plenty of time for a chat with your team members about your running experiences, after a shower, some drinks and dinner.

On the next morning, after a hot breakfast, you will be following a different route to get back through Chiltern Hills. The trails undulate along grassy terrain, along oak and beech forests, passing by small English villages, and completing 36 miles! At the end of the challenge, we will give you as a reward a RtW tech shirt.

So if you are in for this trail running challenge, just send us a request and book your place! Come join us for a great trail running adventure in the Chiltern Hills. Sign up now as spots are limited! 



Accommodation on the Saturday night will be at the comfortable Peacock Country Inn near Bledlow. Rooms are on a twin sharing basis unless you request for a single room at a supplemental rate.
