Chiltern 50 Challenge

Walk, jog or run along the Chiltern’s historic countryside trails.

This ‘end of season’ 50km loop route covers some of the best views of the Chiltern hills as you pass through nature reserves, forests, and stunning hill views. Starting and finishing in Henley, this challenge is easily accessible from London. There’s also a 25km option, so whether you’re an experienced hiker or a walker in your spare time there’s a challenge for everyone. 

The Ultra series events are some of the UK’s first successful ‘COVID-secure’ mass participation challenges. The organisers will be implementing standardised measures to keep all participants safe.

Why join Team Teach First

The UK’s poorest children have always had to work harder to keep up with their wealthier peers at school. COVID-19 has made it worse. All children have big dreams. But not every child gets the chance to make them a reality.

We know that when we get the foundations right for disadvantaged pupils – great teachers, brilliant leaders and thriving schools – all young people can have the opportunities they deserve.   

  • Great teachers - We recruit talented people to become teachers and place them in the schools that need them most.  
  • Brilliant leaders - We develop strong leaders, so schools can create lasting change at every level.   
  • Thriving schools - We help schools to build a thriving community, with supportive networks and positive government policy.
