Race Description

Very tranquil setting. It is the ninth year running. The 32K trail cycle boasts stunning scenery. One or two steep hills. There is an option to shorten the cycle at 14Km. There is also an 11K Trail run. Some people Cycle then run!

There are always excellent reviews from the participants about the organisation and the routes. On the 11K Trail run, there is a slow climb at the start which is a bit rutted and at 3 miles, watch out for tree roots along the path. After that, it’s plain sailing (one or two stiles..). Beautiful setting. The cycle follows a separate route and will start ahead of the runners.

The 4K fun run is all off-road and flat. Perfect for children. Our grateful thanks go to Up & Running in Southampton, Hobbs the Printers in Totton, Hildon Water in Broughton,The Trophy Box and Emma Wightman, Osteopath, both in Stockbridge for helping us support this event.
