The QECP Off Road 1/2 Marathon. Starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, which is a large country park situated on the South Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is conveniently located on the A3 south of Petersfield, Hampshire.

This amazing early season trail run has it all, spectacular tree lined trails, magnificent views and sturdy trails which are a pleasure to run on.

The route starts and finishes in QECP exploring its hard packed off road trail network.

The Epic and Standard routes head out of the park where you'll enjoy running through the ancient woodland at ‘Head Down’ before reaching the iconic South Downs Way. From here both routes loop back to the park via the famous local trail called the ‘Milky Way’.

Back in the Park all 3 routes combine together to explore ‘War Down’ which boasts weatherproof, tree lined gravel tracks. You will get a real sense of being at one with Nature and allowing your mind to wonder whilst your legs clock up the kilometres.

What better place to experience trail running than with a course that allows you to experience multiple terrains and overloads your senses with such a variety of incredible views.

Regardless of experience or ability, we actively encourage new runners to our events and have 3 route lengths to choose from: Epic (21km), Standard (15km) and Short (9km).

At the finish you will receive a well-deserved quality event specific medal, running cups and neck buff.
