The courses are unsuitable for wheelchair entrants
Limited changing facilities
The normal route of this race is usually 10K. For 2014 we had to reduce the distance to 5 miles because of storm damage to the beach path. Unfortunately, for 2016 it will have to be a 5 mile run again. This is due to the fact that the beach path at Lepe has still not been repaired, although repairs are taking place, they will not be finished prior to the race.
We were unable to find a suitable and safe 10k alternate route so the race will remain being a 5 mile course. Exbury have kindly allowed us to extend the course within the gardens to make up the correct distance. We will revert to 10K when the beach path is repaired.
Our apologies for the change to the race but hopefully you will still have a great day out and enjoy all the gardens facilities after the race.
Please arrive in good time to collect your race number and timing chip
