    • Did the 100km non-stop in 2017

      It's a truly world class event and a very accessible ultra. It has some of the most friendly and helpful aid stations I've ever seen
    • Did the Weekender incl. camping in 2017

      It was my first ultra event and I had a great time.
    • Did the 100km non-stop in 2015

      Was my first Ultra and an awesome race to get going on. Marshalls were fantastic and a really great atmosphere all the way round. It can get pretty hot and exposed. Tip: Walk up pretty much all the hills, event the guys right at the front do it

    About the event
    From the organiser

    A tranquil run along the Thames, starting from the Prince of Wales Pub, Iffley, near Oxford, and making its way to Henley through ever changing scenery, using the banks and towpaths of England's largest river, as well as footpaths and bridleways. This is great race to prepare for even bigger challenges.

    • Did the Ultramarathon in 2018

      Having run over 100 ultras I do keep drifting back to this one, which is testiment to how enjoyable and well organised it is. Navigiation is easy just follow the Thames Path signs and generally keep the river in site, albeit there are a couple of places where the path leaves the river. The path is muddy and slippery in many places, but I'm a mud monster, so I love this. Dont whine and complain about it, just plough through it. Since its winter the weather is often variable, but again there's no such thing as bad weather, just weak people. To sum up, it's a brilliant race, which every ultra runner should run at some point.
    • Did the Ultramarathon in 2018

      It was an experience to say the least, maybe one i wasn't expecting to be so muddy, i managed to survive the swamps of mud along the course, but i have to be honest, there was certainly not enough communication on how bad it is, seeing as they said before the race this was the best for the past few years. We were there to run, and i believe in doing my research even with Film My Run review on YouTube which is paid for by the marathon cleverly DOES NOT mention or film any of the parts (1/3 course) as swamp. I dont mind but i think the organisers have a duty to be honest, because it can be dangerous and i believe for 2018 only half the field completed it.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    THE CW50 IS A 50 MILE SINGLE LOOP AROUND THE BEAUTIFUL CHILTERN COUNTRYSIDE. THE ROUTE TAKES IN 5600FT OF CLIMB AND VISITS PICTURESQUE VILLAGES, BURSTING WITH HISTORY, FEATURING LOCATIONS MADE FAMOUS BY BRITISH FILM & TELEVISION. THIS EVENT IS RACE 3 IN THE 50 MILE GRAND SLAM.

    As with all Centurion events, runners will be fully supported by 5 well stocked aid stations, full medical support and a marked course. Race held under full UK Athletics Permit granted through the TRA (Permit Number Pending).

    The race route consists of a single 50 mile loop through the Chiltern Hills. Starting and finishing in the riverside village of Goring On Thames, It begins by heading down the 'hilliest' section of the Thames Path National Trail to Whitchurch, before joining the Chiltern Way to Mapledurham. From there it is a short 4 mile section through to Sonning Common, before runners get in to some of the best climbs, descents, valleys and villages that the Chilterns have to offer.

    Travelling first through Bix, runners then pay a visit to Stonor Deer Park and at Turville and climb steeply out of the village directly past Cobstone Windmill. It's on and down through rolling countryside from there to the Ibstone check point. Runners then continue on the Chiltern Way to the highest point on the course at Christmas Common (800ft), before a fast descent underneath Watlington Hill, to join the Ridgeway as far as Swyncombe Farm aid station. Runners then take the Chiltern Way extension first east, then west to rejoin the Ridgeway at Nuffield. From there it's Grim's Ditch until the final aid station and the turn for home on one of the fastest sections of the course.

    • Did the Chiltern Wonderland 50 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.
