Too many children suffer or die from a lack of medical care simply because their families can't afford the treatment they need. We want to change that by enabling donors to directly fund life saving and life changing operations for children in developing countries.

Lovely friendly race. Very well-organised and the course was really well marked. Not too muddy given the terrible conditions everywhere else! Would be a great first ultra or just a great day out as it's good value and easy to get to the start. And all for a fantastic cause.

Really enjoyed the day. Beautiful route, lots of fun in the mud, hardly any road sections. Great organisation by XNRG. Thoroughly recommend.

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.
