Event summary

Take part in one of the more glamorous 10k events. Great for serious and fun runners alike, this night race snakes along the Meon Valley Trail. Come for the experience of a night run or for the chips and prosecco at the finish line.

Your organiser

Rural Running Limited, formed in October 2016, is a small, family business, run by me, Jeff Clark, my wife Michelle, and Laura Clark, who has recently joined us. As a recent convert to running, and having formerly been reluctant to run a bath, let alone a marathon, I think I know what the average runner wants from an event. If you are looking for a race where you can hide among 1000’s of other competitors, with bells and whistles, then this site is not for you! Our runs are all fairly small, and are aimed at all abilities. However, our runs are also planned with the serious runner in mind. Over the past months we have invested in a chip timing system, meaning even the most competitive runner can be assured of an accurate time. We have gained a reputation for providing ‘intimate’ friendly events, with all our runners providing the encouragement and support we all sometimes need! Importantly, we have also gained a reputation for our medals, which have become legendary! As a company, we are committed to support both local, and national charities, making significant donations from the proceeds from every one of our races. We believe our 2017 diary of races contains something for everything, with road runs, and mixed terrain and trail events.

Good run, nice location and I'm sure even better during the day. Amazing chips with a funky medal too. Just a shame that 4 days on and no results. … read more

Really fun event, but many people have missing results, and no communication from the organisers. I understand there could be technical issues, but some response would be appreciated.. quite disappointing, and I would hesitate to use this event organiser again… read more

Route description
Route description

The course begins close to the River Meon at Station Close.

This is where runners will climb aboard the 'Meon Valley Express' at the imaginary 'Meon Valley Station' before making their way along the Meon Valley Trail.

Runners will turn around just north of Soberton Heath before heading back to claim their well deserved glass of bubbly and chips.
