New Forest Marathon & 10k – SJ Members’ Highlights

Andy Yates – “New Forest Marathon 2018: based in New Forest Showground in Brockenhurst, a great event offering several distances up to the Marathon. Very well organised and extremely friendly staff team and billed as a multi terrain event, I’d say 80% gravel trail 20% road; a really lovely course taking in the heathland, woods and all the animals you associate with this part of the world (ponies, deer, cows!). A only a 1000 runners took on the marathon but the locals get behind all the runners dotted through the various villages and it was a great atmosphere and coupled with some very chatty fellow runners the time passed quickly!! I have though learned a lesson about carrying a small niggle into one of these events and got round in 4hrs 30 but ended up in casualty on Monday morning and now have a forced 5-6 week “rest”. A really good, sold out event in a really special place and I’d definitely recommend it. Just need to do it next year when fully fit……”

Deb Harris – ” I enjoyed this run. The weather helped along with the friendliness of everyone be it a fellow runner or marshal. Lovely medal, tshirt in your race park, which you need to pickup before the race. If you haven’t tried it yet I highly recommend you give it a go.” – click here to read Deb’s full report
