Welcome to The Ley Hill Challenge, a trail running event in Buckinghamshire.

This year's event has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The LEY HILL CHALLENGE is a Trail RUNNING EVENT held in October each year in Ley Hill, near Chesham, Buckinghamshire. The event stages 2 races, a 5km (09:30) and a 10km (10:30). Both courses take entrants through the beautiful Chilterns countryside.

We hope to be back in 2021!


    The 5km course is a lovely undulating course and is suitable for people new to running and speedsters alike.
    The 10km course is a challenge with a mixture of terrain and a tough hill with around 1 mile to the finish. Each year we get feedback from entrants about the 10km course being fabulous and challenging in equal measure!
This is a 'not for profit' event. All entry monies raised go directly to Ley Hill School. You are welcome to raise money for your chosen charity.
The event is based at Ley Hill School [see event location page]. We run the races one after the other so parents can enter an event each without needing to arrange childcare!

This year, we are pleased to welcome Fast Break Sports, a great local company as a partner for the Ley Hill Challenge.
