This race is a 6 hour timed event that runs along the beautiful old Meon Valley Railway line. Providing you complete just one of the 3.3mile laps you'll qualify for the medal and then you can carry on doing further laps for as long as you wish with lots of people targeting 10k, half marathon, marathon, and ultra distance. Then again you're very welcome to do something in between it is completely up to you! This really is an awesome event for anyone who's keen to try a new distance and doesn't want the pressure of a set length course. It can also be a chance to fit into your training block and practicing all of your race day routine without having to find something the right distance for your training schedule.Just to really fit in with the Star Wars Theme there is then another event a day later called Revenge of the Fifth so if you want a full weekend of George Lucas inspired running then why not do the double!

Set on what was the old railway line from Fareham to East Meon, now known as the Meon Valley Trail, we can use this track with kind permission from Hampshire County Council and Wickham Parish Council.
As this is a timed event in the spring, please dress for all weather possibilities.  If we are lucky then the course is normally awash with Bluebells alongside the track.
The course is a good surface, so road shoes will probably be ok, but it will be down to you on the day to make your shoe choice.
Snacks, goodies and fun will be provided.
Children can enter the event but are restricted to certain distances, depending on age.
The event is held under UKA Rules and Regulations (Rule 141 UKA Trail Running) who govern the maximum distance children can run in athletic events. The conditions are:
