Join the team

This 50km looped route covers some of the best of the Chilterns countryside. You can walk, jog, or run along historic trails and over rolling hills. Starting and finishing at our Base Camp in Henley-on-Thames, there’s a Saturday night celebration BBQ and entertainment with camping options.

Passing through nature reserves, forests, and a few hills with great views-it’s a route with real variety, and some wonderful scenery-and it’s all easily accessible from London.

With 25km options, there’s a Chiltern Challenge here for everyone!

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a trek for Dementia UK:

The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging.  But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
