The marathon is back!
On a revised course, with over 600 metres of elevation gain, this is challenging runs along on country lanes, trails and grass.
Challenging, yes, but rewarding too, with fabulous views over the beautiful Meon Valley and across to the Isle of Wight - before a fast descent back into the valley as you head for the finish.
You can take your time to enjoy the occasion, but we ask that you plan to finish by 4:30PM and we may ask you to retire or take a shorter course if you are running out of time.
Course: The route is fully marked with signs and frequent repeater tape and multiple water/feed stations along the way every 4 miles or so. There are expected to be around 200 entrants in the race, so there will be plenty of people around without it being busy.
The terrain is approximately 70% off-road.
Whilst the road sections are on minor country roads, please be aware that the roads are not closed to traffic.
Terrain: The big climb to Winchester hill is sometimes muddy in November, and on the descent at a coup[le of miles after, there may be slippery sections on wet grass. The entire route should be runnable, and there are very few stiles or gates to slow you down.
Bling: At the finish, you will receive the bespoke Meon Valley Marathon medal and refreshments will be available.As always, there will be a new design for the new year.
