About the event

“The toughest sportive close to the capital”

Human Race are proud to have the Chiltern 100 Sportive as part of the Human Race Sportive Series. One of the highest rated major sportives in the UK, the event still maintains a club-like atmosphere and camaraderie. The challenging landscape of the Chilterns means that the 76 mile and 110 mile routes are as testing as they are stunning, both taking in infamous climbs such as Whiteleaf Hill and Wardrobes. The event will be delivered in partnership with VCC, the club who set it up eight years ago and made it the esteemed sportive it is today. Prostate Cancer are the official charity for the Chiltern 100 Sportive. Donate or fundraise £50 or more and receive a free gourmet burger and drink on event day!

Travel & Accommodation

New event HQ and start/finish area: Bovingdon Airfield is located just outside the village of Bovingdon in Hertfordshire on the B4505 between Chesham and Hemel Hempstead. It is easily accessible and approximately fifteen minutes drive from either the M25 Junction 20 or M1 Junction 8. The closest postcode is HP5 3RR, which will take you to a farm adjacent to the site. Your satnav will take you past the main entrance to the airfield, so you can’t miss it.


The main station for the Airfield is Hemel Hempstead Station. This is approximately a 20 minute cycle to the venue, or a short taxi journey.
