Please Note:
If the weather has been very wet then we will need to put in place alternative parking arrangements as it will cause too much damage to the grounds in the camping park, this has happened twice in the 7 years the event has taken place. If this is necessary then parking will be close by at Headlands Business Park, Ringwood BH24 3PB and we run shuttle buses on throughout the day to transport competitors and supporters to and from the race start. You will be notified the week leading up to the event if it is necessary for us to put in place the alternative parking arrangements. Entries are not refunded due to the change in parking circumstances.



This is the New Forest – it’s raw, rugged and it’s untouched – it’s truly an area of outstanding beauty. The courses are all on vehicular tracks, road or bridle paths (only on the Half Marathon distances or above). These aren’t flat courses, they are undulating and if the weather turns damp, the challenge increases! In 2012 we had 24 degree heat, in 2013 we registered 0 degrees on the plain with the wind chill, it’s unpredictable, it’s great fun but above all – it’s as nature intended!!


Road Crossings – it’s your responsibility!!


We only supervise road crossings and open road sections of the courses, we don’t manage them. We aren’t legally allowed to manage traffic – it is your responsibility to check traffic when crossing or running on an open road.


Course distance markers


We do not use course distance markers as, at some points, we have 3 different races running at the same time and all 3 routes are different which would make it very confusing for runners. Sorry for any inconvenience – you can always ask another runners who you can see wearing a GPS if you don’t have your own.
