Basingstoke and Mid Hants Athletic Club invite you to Pamber Forest (the Start is grid reference SU 614 618), a 479-acre Site of Special Scientific Interest, a few miles north of Basingstoke, near Tadley off the A340. The race will be a single lap through forest and fields along undulating tracks and footpaths. It will start at 11:00am; distance 5 miles.After the race, we have locally sourced sausages and bread rolls for your enjoyment, and club members will have prepared some fabulous cakes, so please stay at the Race HQ post-race, if you can, to enjoy your well-deserved refreshments.
Limited toilets, changing, and clothing dump are available at the Race HQ.
All runners must wear a Club Vest. There may be sheep in the farmers field near Little London (the southern edge of the course), so no dogs, sorry. Full race rules (including pace eligibility) here
The start and finish will be in the open field adjacent to the forest entrance, and accessed from Burney Bit. To reach this field, either walk along Burney Bit eastwards from the Pamber Heath Road junction for approx 300m and then turn right, or simply follow the tape and signage from the Race HQ (10 min walk). There is plenty of room for club tents and flags.
As always, please display courtesy to others members of the public on the day, including whilst running. Please use the toilets in the Race HQ, or (if needs must) not in public view, particularly near the start.
