New Forest 10k/Half Marathon Info

By now those of you who are doing the NF 10k/HM you should have received your email notifying you of race day instructions. Here's my advice

We meet at The Solent Hotel at 7.15am and car share to the run, please comment if you are happy to drive/need a lift.

There is only one road in and out of the race village and it gets extremely busy, best be there early and have a coffee and a banana.

Don't forget your £3 for car parking and money for tea/coffee/refreshments.

We pick up our numbers on the day as we will be there early.

We base ourselves in the refreshment arena as there are tables and benches.

We drop our bags into the baggage tent.

As soon as we finish our race we stay in the finish area to cheer everyone in (the baggage tent is by the finish so we can get bags so we don't get cold)

Temperature outlook is good about 16 degrees

Once everyone is in we can go back to the refreshment arena for refreshments. I would suggest you bring a sandwhich to eat after the run as it can take a long time to get out of the event as well.

Basically it is a big event and gets very busy but it is very well organised and is a great atmosphere.
