Route information
The course will mainly be a mixture of gravel surfaced woodland trails in the forest to the north west of Brockenhurst. Part of the course will extend onto heathland on the old airfield on Beaulieu Heath, where it will follow existing hard surfaced tracks. There are only two road crossings, which will be fully marshalled.

Course Notes

We are intending to provide a great event that can be used for the build up to a spring marathon, most notably London, so we have chosen a course that is relatively flat with mostly good quality gravel tracks. There is virtually no road but there are sections of tarmac and concrete around the old Beaulieu Aerodrome.
Overall the surface will allow good fast pace running for an off road event. If the course is dry then racing flats or normal trainers would be a good choice. If it’s wet then you may want a bit more grip.

The Start
There will be marshals or signs directing you to the start which is about 1 mile away on the track behind the Balmer Lawn.  The race starts at 10.30 am.  Please allow enough time to get there from Race Headquarters which is a mile away.  If you miss the start by more than 5 minutes you start at your own risk and may find race support including marshals has been removed.
**Arrival
Please arrive in plenty of time.  Remember you have to collect your numbers, maybe queue for a loo and get to the start which is just over a 1 mile away with no vehicle access. **
