Join us and Conquer the Chilterns this year in the heart of the Thames Valley and only an hour away from London.
This is one of the most scenic events in the country with a fantastic course around the Chiltern Valley and the banks of the River Thames.
The Swim takes place in the River Thames and navigates the world-famous Henley Royal Regatta and Temple Island Meadows.
The Cycle is a lapped course with one large climb per lap. Any time lost going up will certainly be made coming back down through the Stonor Valley, which stretches for nearly 5 miles directly into Henley.
The Run course will be an undulating climb overlooking breath-taking views and landscapes in the final section of the event.
Entry on the Day will not be available at this event.
