Route information
Finish your year on a high with this Half Marathon event through the New Forest National Park. The undulating route starts at Lyndhurst, and takes runners along wide, hard-packed gravel pathways and through stunning forests.
Runners should keep an eye out for native New Forest ponies as well as horses, donkeys, and deer roaming free and grazing on the side of the trails.
With only 183m of elevation, and well-maintained, solid trails, this event is the perfect run for late season conditions!

Pre-event organisation was a bit muddled - didn't receive a race pack in the post and wasn't sure if I was meant to, emails near the time of the race said no bag drop, and overwhelming focus of info I received was parking - I don't drive so bag drop is vital for me and parking is irrelevant, public/active transport info would have been more helpful. Got a quick response to an email query though, and on the day things couldn't have been better. Got a new number quickly at the event, bag drop WAS available and no problem, plenty of portaloos and nice to be able to get coffee and a pastry beforehand! Course really well marked and marshalled, beautiful surroundings, and weather conditions were perfect. Really enjoyed it and would run again. Appreciate the organisers' efforts toward sustainability re water etc, and not having a tshirt automatically bundled into the price. Not everyone runs for a goodie bag! Would suggest less of a focus on cars/assumption of their use in the organisation would help re environmental impact of the event too. Hoping to run another of their new forest events next year.
