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'.

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

First Aid support provided.
