Dr Challoner's Grammar School: Chesham Rd, Amersham, United Kingdom
Welcome to the Humanity Direct "Amersham" Ultra. Based at Dr Challoner's Grammar School, the 31 mile route takes in many areas of natural beauty in the Chilterns, including the Misbourne Valley, the Chess Valley, some of the best areas in the Chiltern Hills. The "Humanity Direct 50Km Challenge" is run mainly on footpaths and bridleways, with a little road section. The route is comprehensively marked with tape, paint, direction arrows. All competitors will also be given a map and GPS download. The event is supported by our course manager and his experienced on course crew to ensure you have a great event and maintain event safety. A fully qualified medical crew are in attendance, to give first aid and to manage any serious medical problems in cooperation with the emergency services.
Katrina and Nick Swift came up with the idea for Humanity Direct several years ago when Katrina had an emergency c-section during the birth of their first child.
"We were incredibly lucky to have access to superb medical care and it made us reflect on people in the developing world who did not have this medical backup".
They started off raising money themselves completing over 40 marathons, triathlons and challenges between them to help fund operations. They continue to fundraise while encouraging other people to join them and help change the lives of the young patients who need our help.
This event is £48 or free to enter with a commitment to raise funds. All the money raised including the enrty fees will be passed to Humanity Direct. We know that our Extreme Energy family will rally behind us to make this an oustanding "giving" event.
