Half Marathon

Launched in 2012 alongside the famous South Downs Trail Marathon, turning the day into a festival of running – and with spectators and participants staying all day and enjoying picnics on the grass at the finish under Butser Hill, this really does feel like a festival.

The half marathon starts and finishes in Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Petersfield and has excellent on route support. If it's your first trail half marathon there could be no better introduction.
