This is the New Forest - it’s raw, rugged and it’s untouched - it’s truly an area of outstanding beauty. The courses are all on vehicular tracks, road  or bridle paths (only on the Half Marathon distances or above). These aren’t flat courses, they are undulating and if the weather turns damp, the challenge increases! In 2012 we had 24 degree heat, in 2013 we registered 0 degrees on the plain with the wind chill, it’s unpredictable, it’s great fun but above all – it’s as nature intended!!
