Kick start your 2021 season and training off the right way with the New Forest ½ Marathon. This amazing early season trail running event is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Consisting of wide, hard packed gravel pathways, the route weaves through magnificent forests where you'll encounter the native New Forest ponies as well as horses, donkeys and deer roaming free and grazing on the side of the trails.
The well maintained and solid underfoot trails are easy to run on in any weather and make for the perfect early season event. The route can be described as slightly undulating / relatively flat with only a 183m elevation gain over the full 1/2 marathon route. Perfect for your early season legs!
The route is easy to follow and flows seamlessly as it guides you through ancient woodland and beautiful heathland. What better place to experience trail running! Regardless of experience or ability, we actively encourage new runners to our events and have 3 route lengths to choose from: 1/2 Marathon (21km), Standard (15.7km) and Short (8.7km).
