A nice day out in the New Forest
Ran this event this year (08) as my 1st 10 miler - what a GREAT race
Will keep space open in diary for this one.
I've entered so count me in!
Roobarb - do you mean late time of the day the race starts?
I'm keen to sign-up to the NF10, having done the Great South last year, but I havent been able to find out on-line what time is starts, can you fill me in?
MR - the race starts at 11.15am. When I first did it in 2005 the race started at 12.45pm. It was about 35c, after feed back they changed the time to what it is now. Be aware there is not much shade in this half marathon. It is a lovely race and well worth doing thou.
And there's ponies and highland cattle!
I like the late start as it gives me time to get there. Then again there is a campsite opposite.
Dalya - I didn't see you at the doyen but I might meet you on this one.
I've just signed up for this but can't get any information from the NF10 web site? Anyone on the forum from the NF runners as the website is so very last year!
Might just make a weekend of it and use the camp sites, looking forward to it already.
Very kind helly d,
it was more of a general enquiry but more specifically if there is much for the family to do whilst we are on our jaunt. Also, if the course is flat and PB material or more of an 'enjoy the sights' type of run?
Tracey's fairly spot on re things for the family to do but even though the start/finish is in an unspectacular field the area is beautiful and if you are camping you'll get more of a chance to check it out.
The course itself is relatively flat, what I'd call genuinely undulating rather than hilly disguised as undulating if that makes any sense. Some is on forest trails, some on roads through heath and forest areas. Scenic but can get hot on a calm day as there's little wind and you are often sheltered by forest. Not a PB for me but not that much slower.
