Chiltern 50 Challenge

26 Sept 2020

Participant Area

The 2020 Chiltern 50 is approaching quickly, and we are really looking forward to it as 2020 has been a ‘challenging’ year for event companies, and we are proud to be amongst the first operating a Covid secure mass participation event. This Final Event Guide will help you make your final plans, and please read it carefully, as we’ve introduced many changes to our normal format to comply with Social Distancing requirements and other Covid-19 risk reduction measures. All of our participants, along with our staff and suppliers, play an important role in ensuring that a safe event is delivered for all involved, and for the local communities which welcome us into their neighbourhoods.
