Starting at Slindon College at 9.00am the full marathon runners follow a route up onto the South Downs through woodland reaching the South Downs Way at 5.5 miles, then running west back to the finish at Queen Elizabeth Country Park. The free buses to take marathon runners to the start departs from QE Park with the full marathon runners between 7 and 7.15am. There are drinks stations at 5.5, 7.5, 13, 17, 20, 23 miles with food at 13 and 20 miles.
There is a cut off time of 7hrs on the route with intermediate cut-offs of 3hrs 15mins at 13 miles and 5hrs at 20 miles. Runners outside these times will be returned to the finish by minibus.
Starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park near Petersfield, the half marathon follows a route through the Country Park then across fields to the Village of Chalton before picking up the Sussex Border Path, which brings you on to the South Downs Way. The route then joins the Full Marathon route running west for 4 miles on the South Downs Way back through QE Park to the finish. To prevent congestion on the at the style at 3.5 miles,, there will be two wave starts this year with Wave 1 leaving at 10am and Wave 2 at 10.15am. Waves will be split on estimated times on the entry data base to give two even waves.
Starting at 10.30am the 10K takes in the first 2.4miles of the half marathon route, before it divides to follows the Staunton Way, which joins the South Downs Trail as it enters QE Park at the Buriton Gate. The 10K route then follows the South Downs Way to the finish along the same route as the marathon and half marathon. Essentially the route is a gradual climb up to halfway with a downhill return to the finish at Butser Hill.
