The event will run over our well established course which has been greeted enthusiastically by runners in previous events including the highly successful series of John Austin Half Marathons. It is a scenic off road course, entirely traffic free running through the beautiful New Forest.
Organised with the help and support of the local running community, the race makes a great day out for competitors of all levels. The date just a few weeks before the London Marathon lends itself nicely to a spring marathon buildup. There will be prizes for the overall men’s and women’s winners and winners of respective age categories (Senior, V40, V50, V60) as well as spot prizes, T-Shirt, Medals and an excellent goody bag for all runners with 100% of the proceeds going to Oakhaven Hospice.
