Organiser's Description

Spectacular 14 mile, 19 mile, Marathon and 50K ultra trail races around the beautiful Winchester countryside.

Your journey around England's old capital begins in the heart of Winchester. Starting and finishing at Winchester Rugby Club, participants run along the Itchen Navigation where your first big challenge awaits as you ascend past St Catherine's Hill and head east across the beautiful undulating trails to Cheesefoot Head.

You then have a succession of 'Big Way' paths; the South Downs Way, Allan King Way, St Swithun's Way and the Itchen Way, leading you through quintessential English countryside as the trail meanders alongside the River Itchen and out on the Three Castles Path towards Kings Worthy.

From here, the marathon and ultra routes head out on the Watercress Way to the spectacular 17th Century Lainston House. No time for their famous afternoon tea here though, today you just pass through!

Skirting Farley Mount, the final leg of your challenge takes you back on the Clarendon Way towards St Cross and the Water Meadows.

Be inspired by the sight of Winchester Cathedral as you head towards the finish and the end of your monumental challenge!
