South Downs Trail Half Marathon

When: 16 June 2018

Where: South Downs, Hampshire

About: In what seems just a few short years, the South Downs Half Marathon has become a classic on the running calendar. It’s not surprising when you see the fantastic scenery on the route.

Starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park near Petersfield the half marathon follows a route through the Country Park then across fields to the Village of Chalton before picking up the Sussex Border Path, bringing you to the South Downs Way.

The route then joins the Full Marathon route running west for four miles on the South Downs Way, back through Queen Elizabeth Country Park to the finish.

Runners and participants can enjoy and celebrate the day with picnics on the grass at the finish under Butser Hill.

Registration fee: £28
