The course is similar to previous years', taking advantage of the whole estate and all its facilities, but has been revised as part of the estate is no longer available to us.

Course map

Fairthorne Manor includes a former golf course and is now run as a Family Park and Campsite by the YMCA. As it is private property, the general public cannot access the site other than for organised events.

We are once again indebted to Jon Osman for designing the course, and his club colleagues from Eastleigh RC for setting up the course and marshalling on the day.

Course details

The course is based on three laps:

  • The Arena Lap, a loop of approximately 1200m on sloping grassland, which can be seen from the main spectator area at the start and finish.
  • The Medium Lap, approximately 2000m long, which leaves the Arena Lap and follows a series of paths through the woods
  • The Full Lap, approximately 3600m long, which adds to the Medium Lap by taking in a circuit of the Campsite field.

Various modifications have been made to adjust the race distances for each age group.
