There is something for everyone at Alice Holt Forest including adventure playgrounds, Go Ape, nature walks, cycling and refreshments and ice creams at the 'Cafe on the Green'.

About the course

A scenic, multi-terrain undulating forest course, generally smooth hard-packed gravel making it safe and fast for an off-road event (unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs and this is a human race so no dogs, push chairs, or bikes please).

Drinks and sponge stations at the start / finish of each race and at the half way for the 10K.

First Aid support provided.

Free parking in the designated field 400m from the start.
