The Race

We are delighted to offer 6 race options for 2020

 Full Marathon,  Half Marathon,  10k ,  5k, Junior 1k, Junior 200m and a Woodland Walk.

The New Forest is one of the most beautiful locations in the UK. We are excited about sharing this with you. Extensive planning and testing has gone into the routes to offer a true New Forest experience.

All routes will start and finish from New Park Showground, Brockenhurst and wind through the heart of the New Forest National Park. The multi-terrain courses offer some of the most scenic running experiences in the country, with a blend of forest enclosures, open roads, far reaching views and of course, the famous New Forest ponies!

Details of 2020 routes can be viewed below



The New Forest Marathon Community Fund

Over the last 35 years the marathon has raised over £1.31 million for local good causes, making a huge impact to many people and organisations, many of which you will see volunteering on race day.

It is absolutely imperative to us to see this pot continue to grow to support all the superb organisations that exist within the New Forest and surrounding area. To achieve this, we have set up The New Forest Marathon Community Fund. To find out more, click on the ‘fundraising’ section.

If you are a company who would like to sponsor the community fund please get in touch!
