Public toilet facilities are available within the shopping centre if required.
The start is a 10 minute walk, deep into the forest, so please allow time. Marshals will be on hand to direct you.
This is a new course of approx. 4.5 miles, one ;lap running through Whiteley Pastures and Botley Woods, run on, gravel tracks, forest trails and recreational paths. There will be mud so we strongly recommend running in trail shoes, our advice is to not run in road shoes. The usual hazards will apply, this is an off road event, held within a forest enclosure and as such, bumps, lumps, dips and hills along with tree roots are all present, these will be marked, but please, as ever take care.
NOTE: Nowhere near as wet/muddy as last year!
This course is not suitable for spikes.
