Chiltern Chase

This race is fairly local to us which is a bonus and the weather is usually good at that time of year which helps. Scenic route and easy start / finish point. The tea and cake waiting at finish line always goes down an absolute treat. Really well run race with very friendly bunch of people. I see familiar faces year on year which says a lot.

“The easy and efficient entry on the day was the prelude to a well organised community event. The setting was stunning and took your mind away from the tough, but fair course. The combination of courses worked really well and was inclusive and yet competitive at the same time. The support from the well marshalled course was extremely welcome and everybody made to feel a winner. I loved it! I really mean what I have said above and have raved about it to anybody who will listen! I hope to be back next year - Jackie Wastell”

"It was lovely. I loved the course and thought it was very well organised. Sadly I had to dash off at the end to rescue my husband who was looking after our three little children. I came first in the 10km but missed the prize giving. Many thanks again for a lovely race. - Penny McCrabbe"

Always a great atmosphere at this race. Very friendly team and extremely well organised. Very scenic and varied course which takes your mind of the pain for a while! We try to make this race every year and hope to do so for many more!

“Ran in this for the first time last weekend. What a great event, I wish I'd found it before now. A mixture of road and trail with beautiful scenery, well manned water stations and super friendly marshalls. The lovely lady in Ewelme with the hosepipe to spray us was particularly welcome. Just one little request for next time please - the cakes looked delicious but could you also have something Gluten Free available. The tea was very welcome but you can't beat a bit of cake when you've just had a good run. Jocelyn Granger, Northampton Road Runners.”

2018 The race was well organised and efficient. It would be great if all the results were displayed on a board or a PC Screen for everyone to see ASAP after each race! How about 1at, 2nd & 3rd prizes or Certificates for EVERY category!? Thanks Gordon Phillips MBE

I have done the 10k a few times now and find it a really varied and interesting course. Mostly off-road, on paths through fields and forest, but the ground is fairly even, so it can be run at any speed. Well organised and friendly. I will definitely run it again. Andrew Farrell

The Chiltern Chase is an extremely important sponsor in our school community, raising in excess of £42,500 in donations to the school’s Parent Teacher Association (FOES) since the first race in 2006. The donations, administered through FOES, have been integral in enabling the school to purchase a wide range of equipment and resources which would have been otherwise beyond its means. The Chiltern Chase attracts more runners and walkers each year and I cannot thank the participants enough for helping Ewelme School to continue to thrive in our small village. Mrs M. Slatter Headteacher, Ewelme C of E Primary School

Just want to pass on my thanks for the superbly organised event this weekend. From the detailed website/pre-race information, clear signs to the car park, helpful marshalls, organised registration desk, ample water and toilet facilities to the beautiful route itself! The route was challenging, especially in the hot conditions, but the marshalls were very encouraging along the way and there was a lovely atmosphere. Many thanks for all who played a part in this event.

This was only my 2nd 10k and it was quite challenging on the hills! But it was well run, lovely marshalls and great scenery.

A couple of inclines that make you think twice but a stunning course with lots of varied terrain (including a short stretch through a pig farm with pigs spectating). Well organised and a good atmosphere with a good mix of running ability. Will be back next year.

My second Chiltern Chase and I’ll be back for a third. Well organised and beautiful run through picturesque Oxfordshire. Two water stations which were welcome and very friendly.

I thoroughly enjoyed the race again- it was very well organized with lots of signs up and friendly marshals.

An interesting and varied course, some country lanes, some farm tracks, a couple of fields and some wooded single-track. Great countryside, with enough hills to break the pace, but nothing to seriously slow you down. Not PB potential, more of a fast, Sunday training run.

Thanks for the usual good race, ..5k measuring was a bit off,...1/4 mile too far. However.....pretty polished race, in an always good location... My clubmates from Marlow Striders always speak well of your race, and long may it continue.
