Chiltern 20 footprint


The online entry database will open on 2nd September 2022.


The start and finish is at Princes Risborough School, Merton Road, Princes Risborough HP27 0DR


The emergency number for Central Control is 07960 282626. Please ensure that your Home Contact has this phone number which will be operational from 07:00 Saturday 15th October. The alternative contact number is the event secretary 07889 804726.


Team managers will be sent team numbers and start times by email. We will also send a “checking in time” to help control the flow of teams through the registration process. Please follow the C20 signs to the venue and registration.


Please check in as a complete team on arrival. You will be issued with your identity wristbands, containing your team number and individual team letter, emergency contact and a bar code for scanning at checkpoints.

Team member changes can be made prior to the event by logging on to the online entry database up until 22:00 hrs on Thursday 13th October. Any late changes can be made at registration. It is the team manager’s responsibility to ensure that all participants are aware of the rules and that they are aware of their team name and number, their team leader, shown as “A” on the entry form, that the two chosen mobile phones being carried by each team are switched on, and where they are on the map. Participants need to be aware that any adult walking with the team is not the team leader and simply walking with the team for safety purposes.


All teams will be briefed on basic navigation awareness before they start. Teams will start in numerical order from 08:00 hrs onwards, with two teams departing every three minutes. Teams participating in the senior event will leave first, followed by teams participating in the junior event. Teams will be provided with a set of six figure map references at the start. These map references correspond to checkpoints, which teams need to visit in order. There is no designated lunch break, and participants can decide when they eat their own packed lunch. Checkpoints will provide cold drinks but no food.


Supporters can collect list of checkpoints from the Information Desk after the last team has departed. Supporters will be unable to visit some of the checkpoints as they will be situated along narrow tracks.


A snack meal will be provided to all participants in the form of a burger or veggie burger or sausage in a bun plus a can of drink from 17:00 hrs. Team managers will need to click on a box for each participant’s choice of food and details of any allergies and medical conditions.


The presentation of certificates and trophies will commence at the venue at 18:00. We hope to be able to print off and award as many certificates as possible at this time. Any teams finishing late will have their certificates posted off to the team manager. Only finishing teams that consist of the same participants that started will receive a finishing time, a placing and qualify for a trophy. Incomplete teams will receive a finishing time but not a placing.


For your safety and the future of the event please observe the following whilst on the School premises:

  • No smoking anywhere in the School or anywhere on site
  • Fire Exits must be kept clear
  • Do not obstruct doors or gangways
  • Do not obstruct or tamper with fire fighting equipment
  • Familiarise yourself with the fire evacuation procedure


If you discover a fire, sound the alarm, alert a Chiltern 20 official and call the fire services (or ensure someone does).

On hearing the alarm proceed to the nearest fire exit and make your way to the fire assembly point outside the building

Once outside at the assembly point give your name to the official on duty

The Chiltern 20 organisers will appoint fire wardens who will patrol the School and take charge in the event of a fire. Please follow any instructions they give.
