Course Details

A scenic multi terrain 50km course, mainly flat through forestry and along the seafront to finish next to the beach at Hengistbury Head.

The 50km course starts in Moors Valley for a couple of kilometres before joining the Castleman’s Trailway. You will stay on the Castleman’s Trailway until the approximate halfway mark. It’s relatively flat and will be mainly firm underfoot, but can also be wet in places if we have a lot of rain beforehand. From 27km onwards the course is mainly on promenade and footpaths.
Please be respectful and courteous to other users of the trails
