The Wickham Whistler

Date & Location

Wickham, Hampshire

Organiser’s Description

The Meon Valley Railway line runs from Alton to Fareham. 55 years ago on 30 April 1961 the last British Rail scheduled passenger service on any part of the Meon Valley Railway was the ‘Solent Limited’ railtour (a year to the day before the section was closed). To mark this occasion, On The Whistle Ltd is hosting a 6 hour challenge event along the disused railway line, starting in Wickham. Complete one 3.3 mile lap to qualify for the medal or continue to run achieving 10k, half marathon, marathon, ultra distance or something in between, it’s up to you.
