Saturday saw the first Ultra Challenge of the season take place – the Chiltern 50 Challenge, setting out from a base camp in Henley. Though it may have felt & looked slightly different from previous challenges, we were so pleased to see that the special atmosphere, spirit, camaraderie, and determination flourished within this new ‘Covid-secure’ format.

We would like to extend a huge congratulations to everyone who took part, on what turned out to be a lovely early Autumn day, with around 1,100 challengers setting out in to some wonderful countryside, and it was fantastic to see so many familiar face after months of ‘virtual’ events, and just waiting to get back out on the trails again.

Everyone did incredibly well - with an amazing 96% completing their distance, and all who took part should all be proud of your accomplishments – we were pleased to have supported you – and a huge thanks to everyone, as the Covid risk reduction measures were followed impeccably, with everyone being respectful of the restrictions and of each other - and are pleased to confirm that it was described as a 'model event' by the two Council officials who visited us on Saturday morning & afternoon.

Overall we thought it was a fantastic day, and we’d also like to thank our suppliers and freelance staff who have all been experiencing tough times as the ‘events’ sector has been hit hard. A great showcase for how outdoor events like these can definitely have a place in 2021 – and indeed will massively contribute to the well being of all who take part, and hopefully support many of the charities that have seen a complete fall off in fundraising. Ultra Challenges will be run safely & responsibly, and we hope many more of you will be up for joining us in 2021 as we have a fantastic series, and the Early Bird sign up deals are now on!
