Volunteering at the Chiltern Way Ultra 100k and 214k

The 214k event costs 20 Volunteer Points to enter. 


The 100k event costs 10 Volunteer Points to enter.

How to volunteer

Without the small army of volunteers who help out at our races we would not be as successful at putting on great events. We would like to reward and recognise the dedication of those volunteers who come and make the runners' experience a great one.


If you volunteer at our events you will earn 1 Volunteer Point (VP) for every 2 hours you give. So if you work 10 hours at a race, you will earn 5 VPs.


We want your help even if you can only spare a few hours at a time. Obviously the longer you give us the greater the reward.


VPs can be cashed in towards entries into ANY of our races. You don't have to volunteer for the race you want to run and miss it to earn a space the following year. You can simply work on some of our other races and save the points to pay for ANY race. Each race has a set entry cost in VPs, which will be listed on the entry page for that race.


You can also spend VPs towards the cost of a race if you have not got enough points to cover the full entry. For this purpose, each VP is woth £7.50 towards the entry fee.

If you wish to spend your VPs on a race, you simply email us and we will book you into that event. We will store all your details on a spreadsheet and log your points on there.


If you wish to volunteer for an event we are always happy to book up volunteers well in advance, please email me info@challenge-running.co.uk.
