Humanity Direct Amersham Ultra routes

This race is for a fantastic cause, with previous years having raised up to £8,000 for Humanity Direct, a charity which helps children in developing countries get the medical care they vitally need. As such, your £58 race fee is a donation to a great cause.

This course will take you throughout the picturesque Chiltern Hills and through some of its most notable valleys - Misbourne and Chess.

The ultra is split into three races: walkers, runners, and elite runners. Each race starts at a different time, with elite runners targeting a time below 6 hours.

The route itself will consist of 4 checkpoints, doubling up as aid stations. Checkpoints will consist of refreshments and food, as well as health checks. Details of these can be found below:

Start - Checkpoint 1: 11.6KM
Checkpoint 1 - Checkpoint 2: 6.9KM
Checkpoint 2 - Checkpoint 3: 14KM
Checkpoint 3 - Checkpoint 4: 7.2KM
Checkpoint 4 - Finish: 7.2KM

The route is clearly marked throughout and there will be on course marshals, however you will still need consult your map.

  • Did the Amersham Ultra - Runners in 2019

    A brilliant, yet challenging, day out in the Chilterns. Heartily recommended for 'ultra' beginners.
  • Did the Amersham Ultra - Runners in 2019

    All in all a good event. This is a highly runnable course, even when conditions underfoot aren't ideal (as was.the case this year). The only real complaint I have is the difference between the actual route and the information provided beforehand (on internet and maps provided on the day), as there were a couple of deviations that had a real mental impact as I had run the course during training. It should also be noted that the course is about 48.5km, not 50k as advertised.
