Organiser's Description

The ‘Beast to the East’ is a spectacular yet challenging sportive across the Meon Valley

Beautiful, scenic and challenging sportive across the Meon Valley towards Glorious Goodwood. 28, 57 and 82 miles, fully marked and marshalled with stocked aid stations.

All routes start from Swanmore and head out towards Hampton Hill, Beacon Hill and Old Winchester Hill, where you can enjoy amazing views across the beautiful rolling countryside.

The medium and long routes head up the renowned Butser Hill, lots of out-the-saddle climbing here but the sight of the sea and the panoramic views at the top make this totally worth it!

You then head over to Rowlands Castle with the medium route looping back via South Harting and the long route heading on towards Glorious Goodwood, returning via the South Downs National Park.

Race Day

Please where possible car share or use public transport to attend the event. When parking, be mindful of others and ensure event car parks are used and not verges/side roads. Permissions are granted for these events on the condition that we are as respectful as possible to members of the public, who will also be visiting our lovely locations. Arrive in good time for your event.

Your personal belongings are your responsibility, please keep them safe. Bag drops are often available but are not secure so we recommend you don’t leave valuable items there.

Your chipped race number must be worn and visible at all times. Please bring your own safety pins to secure. If you retire early from the race then a BigFeat marshal must be made aware so we do not send out a search party! Course maps are available on our website in advance, please familiarise yourselves.
