With over 400 metres of elevation gain in the first half alone, this is a challenging marathon, but rewards you with fabulous views over the beautiful Meon Valley, and across Hampshire to the Isle of Wight.
Run mainly on footpaths, bridleways and byways, there will be route-marking with signs and chalk ground arrows and multiple water/feed stations along the way.
Simplified maps of the course will also be available on the day.
The route has technical challenges with slippery descents on chalky tracks, and is likely to be muddy in places too, but the entire route should be runnable.
Aid stations will be positioned approximately every 4.5 miles, and will have water and soft drinks to refill your containers, plus some cakes, sweets and savouries that you are welcome to take with you.
We ask you to be finished by 4:30PM as it will be getting dark, that's 6½ hours!
Registration open from: 09:00:00
