AID STATIONS

There will be 3 Aid Stations per lap: at Transition, along the lane between Longmeads Copse & Newlands Cottages and at Bailey’s Hard supplying energy drink and water.

Competitors are advised to carry their own gels / food if required.

Respecting the Forest

We are guests in the forest, and we need to minimise the impact of our event on the local inhabitants - both human and animal.

DO NOT DROP LITTER in the New Forest National Park!

Keep all used gel wrappers and bottles with you until you can bin them at the aid stations. Drop zone is 10m either side of the drinks station.

On footpaths you do not have exclusive right of way – watch out for walkers/riders etc.

Please give due respect to horse riders – many horses do not react well to runners – give a wide berth and if approaching from behind, let them know you are there!
