We're heading to the beautiful South Downs National Park to explore the trails surrounding Winchester. The routes we have mapped are intended to test you. With 3 route options to choose from, there's something for everyone. The trails will lead you through the quaint villages of Tichbourne and Cheriton, up and over undulating hills with panoramic views across the National Park. Stunning winding trails take you past the River Itchen and through some awesome woodland before you head back to Cheesefoot Head. This route is fast and hard-packed so we may even see some PBs and new course records set.
With easy access from London, it makes this Hampshire route a must for any trail lover out there.
Long: 24 km
Middle: 16 km
Short: 9 km

In our quest to make this season plastic-free, we ask that you run with a reusable cup or bottle. Hydrapak Speed Cups are available to purchase at each event and online.
If for any reason you wish to transfer out from an event we are happy to do this, but once only. You may transfer to any event listed on our website or even change to a higher value event and pay the difference. We cannot action any transfers or refunds for an event that has sold out.
The last day to transfer out of an event is the Monday before event day (5 days before the event), please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the event you would like to move to. We are not able to move you out of an event if you contact us after this day
Choose your route carefully. The distance and elevation gain should give you some indication as to how easy/hard each route is, as well as showing you where the tougher climbs are.
In an effort to keep our trails clean and preserve the nature around us, we’re aiming to keep out outposts cup free. Please bring a cup or bottle to re-fill.Get a Maverick Speedcup
