Holywell Estate

Holywell Estate

Fareham Running Club welcomes you to our very first SCCL cross country event. A 5-mile course in the wonderful Holywell Estate, Swanmore; expect open fields, technical wooded sections and incredible vistas. The race is a single loop completely on trail (other than 3 crossings of the estate driveway) so expect uneven surfaces at times.


If your satnav takes you to the rear entrance of the estate on the A32 - PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ENTER HERE.

You must enter from the MISLINGFORD ROAD entrance.

You will leave the site via the same entrance.

If you are travelling along the A32, please follow the event arrows from BISHOPS WOOD ROAD, Swanmore to the event location.

If you are travelling on the B2177, follow the event arrows on FOREST ROAD, Waltham Chase.

Parking will be on a large grass field within the estate; we will be charging £5 per car to cover costs of the land use (cash only please).


Race Start/Finish

The race will start at 11am.

There will be a finisher funnel for men and women; ensure you take a numbered token, complete you team scoring sheet and hand in to 'Race Control'; all finishers must be recorded.

We will attempt to announce the winning teams on the day of the race


Toilets & First Aid

There will be cubicles and a urinal available to use.

Please use these facilities and not the grounds of the estate; the family home is very near to the start!!

First Aid will be available at the start/finish supplied by Collingwood Medical Services.
