Its all about the Pi!!

The relationship between the circumference of a circle and the diameter is a constant, called Pi. It equates to the divided by circumference divided by the diameter, which is 3.14 :-) 3.14 miles is approximately 5k, so our Pi run will be 3.14 miles!

When you cross the line, not only do you get a great medal, you get a large portion of freshly fried chips, served to you by our partners 'Sams Mobile Catering'. Numbers are limited so you will need to get in quick. Hot drinks will be available to purchase on the night ;-)

On the 24th March, join us for a Referendum Run where YOU decide the direction you take! Its a 5k trail around parts of the Fareham Creek Trail and the upper reaches of Portsmouth Harbour.

THIS IS NOT A CELEBRATION it is a fun run with a theme!

Leavers can if they wish enter the leave race, and the remainers, if they wish, can enter the remain race. Each of the two races are run in opposite directions :-) The race with the most entries then dictates what you get at the finish line. Every finisher gets a themed medal and then depending on the outcome of the 'Referendum Run', you get either a 'Continental Breakfast, or a sausage bap!!

No politics, just a light hearted way of 'voting with your feet'

The brand new race on the 2019 Rural Running Calendar is aimed at those of you that want a long training run for your Spring marathons, be it London, Southampton, Brighton or any other. The race is run on closed roads around the beautiful countryside of the Meon Valley, to the North of the village of Wickham, famous for its annual Horse Fair. The course consists of 3 laps (20M) or 1 lap (10k)

Marathon running is more than a physical challenge, it's also a great mental challenge. Overcoming the mental challenges when running helps overcome the physical ones.
The Wickham 20 is the ideal race in which to test your grit, in preparation for those Spring marathons, including London. The undulating course, on closed roads takes you out from Wickham, taking in some glorious scenery to the north of the village. As a marathon training 'long run' this race will sell out so if you already have a spring marathon place, be it a charity place at London or are planning on competing in the Southampton or Brighton Marathons, enter now!
