With a choice of 10km or 5km runs there is something for most budding runners, especially if you enjoy a multi-terrain course which will include road, bridleway-track, beach and park. Taking part in the running event in the morning also gives you the opportunity to compete in one of the other sports on the day such as swimming or cycling or just enjoy the range of activities on the foreshore!
Both distances start together down in the village near the Royal Southern Yacht Club (where registration takes place) at 10.30am.
The route is based on previous years, starting in the village and heading north up the High Street and then turning onto an off-road track (Hamble Rail Trail) which leads into the Royal Victoria Country Park and then brings runners to the finish via the beach. This year we’ve made a few small tweaks including a lap around the chapel. Please note, the route is just under 10km. See map for details.
Again, the route is based on previous years, starting in the village and heading north up the High Street but this time turning left onto Coach Rd, left onto Gratham Avenue, along Westfield Close, Beech Gardens and back onto Coach Rd before heading down onto the beach and joining the 10km route. See map for details.
Registration will open at 9.30am at the Running Race Headquarters in the Royal Southern Yacht Club where changing and showers are available. Please enter the Yacht Club by an entrance at the back of the building, accessed via Rope Walk and through the car park (club members only parking) There is a bag drop off and changing area (not private!) and a water station. You will need to park in the designated car parks and walk to the Yacht Club which is only 5 minutes from Hamble car parks. Allow a few minutes to get from the registration area to the start.
