Timings:

  • Registration opens at 10.00 am and will close promptly at 10.45am.  Upon arrival, please make your way to the registration tent to collect your race number.

  • Please note there is no bag drop so please return any belongings to your car.

  • Runners with dogs will start first at 11:00 am.  The 10k runners will start approximately 5 minutes later with the 5k runners starting shortly after that.  Please would ‘runners’ make their way to the front of the group, ‘joggers’ stay in the middle of the pack and ‘walkers’ start near the back.  

  • The childrens' 2k event will start after the 5k and 10k runs have finished.  This will allow parents to run in the earlier events, then watch or run with their children later.  We would encourage you to stay to cheer the final 10k and 5k finishers in, before watching our stars of the future!

 

Route:

  • Route maps will be made available in due course (watch this space).

  • The 10k and 5k routes are multi-terrain loops incorporating local footpaths, tracks, fields and road sections.  There are a few stiles and kissing gates along the way.  Please follow all instructions given by the marshals, especially on the road sections.  The marshals are there to ensure your safety - if they ask to you to stop due to oncoming traffic please do so.  The marshals will not be stopping traffic - only runners.

  • These routes are both challenging and undulating, with a few hilly sections!  However you can enjoy spectacular views of the Hampshire countryside and both routes have proved very popular in previous years.

  • Please close any unmanned gates behind the last runner as you pass through.

  • HEADPHONES ARE NOT PERMITTED ON EITHER ROUTE.

  • WARNING: These are multi-terrain cross-country routes and as such, the terrain is uneven, muddy in places and in the event of bad weather, some areas may be slippery.  All entrants should wear appropriate footwear with laces securely tied and take care at all times, following warning signs and markers and following any instructions given by marshals.

 

Facilities:

  •  Toilets will be available in the pavilion.

  •  First aid is available at the finish line and also out on the course.

  • Prizes for winners.

  • Medals and spot prizes available for all finishers.
