Chiltern 100 Sportive Event Information

ABOUT THE EVENT

"The toughest sportive close to the capital"

Following the sell-out 2014 event, 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!

Nutrition and Hydration

SpatoneFeeling tired?

Feeling like you are constantly cycling uphill? Have you had a drop in performance? Low iron levels can cause fatigue and tiredness making it hard for you to keep up with your training programme however one sachet a day of Spatone natural liquid iron has been scientifically proven to help top up your iron levels!

Find out more about how Spatone can help your cycling here.


VitaCoco240 Keep hydrated!

Staying hydrated is crucial for achieving peak performance. Vita Coco coconut water promotes rehydration as well as refuelling as it provides carbohydrate as well as fluid.

Before exercise, your main priority is ensuring you are hydrated to have the best chance of putting in your best performance. During exercise, there are no hard and fast rules about how much to drink but, 400-800ml per hour will prevent dehydration and overhydration. After exercise, the sooner you start to replace the fluid the sooner you will recover. So make drinking your priority immediately after exercise.
