Route Type Looped
Starting in the heart of Winchester, your journey quickly comes to its first challenge. You'll tackle the mighty ascent of St Catherine's Hill follwed by the undulating pathways to Cheesefoot Head.
Next, you'll have a succession of 'Big Way' paths; the South Downs Way, Allan King Way, St Swithun’s Way and the Itchen Way, taking you through quintessential English countryside as the trail meanders alongside the River Itchen past Avington Hall.
Here that the Marathon and Ultra routes diverge away and head out west to the beautiful 17th Century Lainston House. To end the route, runners will trail around Farley Mount, running back on the Clarendon Way towards St Cross and the Water Meadows.
Participants will enjoy the stunning views of Winchester Cathedral along the homestretch to the finish line.

Absolutely loved my day at the BigWayRound event. The course was lovely with some stunning views (and some cruel steps!) the race HQ was well organised and had a great atmosphere both before and after the races and was a great place to chill after and wait for other runners and cheer them home. Aid stations were great and packed with all the right things and all the staff and marshals were so friendly and supportive and the runners were so friendly and supportive too. Loved it!
