Route description
Route description

Bike

Offering some great cycling and event better scenery, each route has long, straight sections that are massively fun, and tough hills, as well as some more gradual climbs. The maximum gradient is at Blissford hill near the end of each route where you will encounter a 25% climb. This is a short sharp climb that looks like a wall as you approach it.

Riders will see livestock on their routes, and hardly any traffic. Horses, in particular, tend to get easily spooked by passing cyclists, so please take care while enjoying what has become a favourite fixture in many people’s cycling calendar.

The 102 mile Epic route offers the more experienced sportive rider a fantastic challenge, and completely showcases the fantastic New Forest National Park. Be warned though – the last 20 miles of the epic route are the hilliest!

Run

Taking place partly on the highway and partly on trails, the run courses are all beautiful. Rather than being wildly competitive, this run is designed for you to race yourself.

You can run up to a marathon if you want to within the 6 allocated hours. A marathon is three laps. The half is an out and back, or you can take on the 5k or 10k options.

Swim

Taking place at the stunning Ellingham Water Ski Lake, this event has 3 routes to choose from, making it the perfect race for the experienced swimmer looking for a quick time or those training for long distance triathlons. However, if you're new to swimming, there are shorter courses for those looking to, literally, dip their toe into open-water swimming.
