First and foremost we are an ultra distance trail event organiser based in the UK. Our objective is to put on the best supported, most professionally and safely organised, runner orientated ultra distance trail races - anywhere. We have taken the things we liked from races we have been fortunate enough to run ourselves and added them to the trails that we love. Our aim is to provide the maximum level of support we can for runners over race weekend on the resources we have available. To be transparent. To be sustainable and reduce waste and environmental impact as much as we physically can. Our races all contain the same basic elements. 50 or 100 miles non-stop and on foot. 13 - 16 fully stocked aid stations over 100 miles (7 over 50), friendly and hugely enthusiastic volunteers and staff and medical support on hand at all times, up and down the course, throughout the race.

Did the 50 Miles in 2020
Lovely race! My first ultra marathon. Organisation was great, despite a lot of extra work had to be put in by the event organiser to make the event safe in light of covid. The course is beautiful, quite hilly with stunning views. Some preparation is needed, as with any ultra you have to bring some kit and familiarise yourself with the course. Would really recommend this to anyone that would like to challenge themselves with a distance beyond a marathon.
Did the 50 Miles in 2017
I ran the Chiltern Wonderland 50 in September 2017. The organisation was second to none. Race HQ in Goring village hall was transformed to check in, kit check and later finishing area. The route is a single loop stitching together the Thames, the Ridgeway trail and a number of smaller trails. There are a couple of decent climbs and some really fun wooded descents as well as long runnable sections. It was extremely well way marked with ticker tape to guide you even in the remotest areas. The aid stations were brilliant and had a fantastic wide choice of food. The volunteers were friendly and helpful. Finishing at the village hall, I really felt like I had been a part of something special. I will definitely look to run another centurion event soon.
