Are you interested in taking on an Ultra Challenge?

Fundraising is a great feel good activity, and taking on an Ultra Challenge for Oxford Health Charity could take that to the next level.  Ultras are longer, harder and more intensive but the rewards are equally impressive - not only will you have conquered that challenge but by taking it on as a fundraising event, you will also have made a difference to patients, carers and staff across Oxford Health.

There are two local events taking place this Autumn to choose from (as well as a whole host of other events across the UK if these don't work for you):

Thames Valley Ultra Challenge - 14 and 15 September 2024

England's greatest river provides a fantastic backdrop for an unforgettable challenge. The race starts at Putney Bridge, with the full 100km route heading upstream to Henley along the famous towpath. It runs through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede and Windsor, with some wonderful scenery to the riverside finish line. With three race distances of 25km, 50km and 100km, choose the distance that suits you best. 

Chiltern 50 Ultra Challenge 28 September 2024

The 50km loop challenge is set in some of the Chilterns finest countryside, with historic trails, rolling hills, nature reserves and fantastic views. The route starts at the basecamp in Henley and the route has some wonderful scenery, with 10km and 25km route options too.

We've had some amazing fundraisers take on ultra challenges for us in the past - you could join them and really make a difference!
