Run mainly on gravel trails within the country park (and the adjacent, aptly named "Head Down" plantation) you will follow fully signed well kept trails.  There are some hilly challenges that will take you on journey of over 500 metres of elevation gain over the half-marathon loop.


Once away from the busy front part of the country park, you will find yourself in the quiet peaceful forest with glimpses or sounds of wildlife.  Later, as you are on the last high point before you drop down to the finish area, there are long views through the clearings to the Solent and Isle of Wight. 

 

The Course:

You will follow the fully signed trail which also has a number of marshals to guide you on your way.

Aid stations are positioned every 7km and will have water to refill your containers.  Also there will be coke and a selection of sweet and savoury snacks.

At the finish you will receive your bespoke medal, designed for 2022.
