Beautiful, scenic course through Hampshire. Clear running rivers and streams, nature reserves and far reaching ridge views made this a great run. A real mix and a great way to explore a new area (to me). Fantastic organisation, communication and way-marking made the only stress of this event the actual running!

The support crew were lovely with an interesting choice of snacks and always helpful. Lovely scenery [in the daylight anyway], luckily more hills at the start so a little helpful. Really could have done with at least one toilet en route as 40 or 50 -ish miles is a long way without a decent bathroom break. Good facilities at the start and finish with a lovely hot meal and awesome medal!

Hi, How tough is the cut off for a novice? What is the total elevation of the race?

I've walked the Test Way in under 14 hours, not as part of this race just as a walk - so if you are running any of it 14 hours should be easy (ish).
