Medstead village green provides us with the perfect spot for the event village where you'll find registration, chip timing pods, event assistance, toilets, local stalls including vegan friendly catering.
This is a cracking route in the heart of Blended Trails running territory, we’ve triple tested it and are sure you’ll love it.
Every finisher will receive a bespoke medal, and there will be water stations and support along the way and prizes for category winners.

Race start times between 9am and 11am - Course cut off at 2.30pm
13.1 miles, 81% trail, 288m elevation.
Starting at the village green, the race picks up the trails promptly, descending from Medstead, one of the highest points in Hampshire, into some open fields and farmland. 8k into the route you will pick up The Oxdrove Way, a superb byway which gently undulates through the Hampshire countryside, the route then cuts South and takes you into a short, shady woodland section. At the 15k mark, keep a look out for the trig point at Bugmore Hill on your left, followed by Godsfield Copse and some stunning countryside to your right as you drop onto some single-track trails through Wield Wood and into the village of Upper Wield. From there you'll have a flat run to the finish that enjoys a stretch along one of the Blended Trails popular Pop-Up run routes, the last 3k of the route takes you through the amazing Hattingley Valley Vineyards and back to the race village finish line.
The race route is subject to change, please check the link below for GPX file and route information before race day.
On the Medstead Village green you’ll find event registration and local vendors including catering, event support, WC’s, medics, water and help.
