About This Activity
This is a 6 hour timed mulitlap event. Each lap being approximately 3.1 miles. The trail is a compact gravel for part of the way, and sand for the rest. 5 laps for a half marathon, 9 for a marathon, and 10 for an Ultra. This venue is variable depending on the weather so we do reserve to alter the course slightly and therefore alter lap lengths subject to weather leading up to the event.
Set in what was part of the old Army tank training facilities in Bordon, this has been converted into a nature park, and we are extremely fortunate to be allowed to put host an event there. We run with kind permissions from the MOD, Deadwater Valley Trust, Bordon and Whitehill Regeneration Office and East Hants District Council.
Please arrive in good time, and there will be a full briefing at 9.20 before the race starting at 9.30.
As this is a timed event in the spring, please dress for all weather possibilities.
Shoe choice would be dependent on the weather and how compact the sand is at that time. When we ran up there ourselves recently, sand could come into your shoes, and therefore we advise you take the appropriate precautions.
We will provide snacks, goodies and fun.
One lap will get you the medal. We cater for all speeds, and for all distances. So whether you want to push yourself to your first 10km, or to your 100th marathon, all your needs will be looked after.
All of our events are registered with the 100 Marathon Club, so if you get to 8 laps it will be another tick in the box towards that 100 (or beyond).
Registration open from: 08:30:00
