The Route

Whitchurch is situated in the beautiful Hampshire countryside. The route is designed to take advantage of this while avoiding as many hills as possible! 

The route is a 5k-ish loop starting and finishing at Testbourne Community School which is mostly flat with an uphill section (thankfully followed with a downhill section into the finish).

The surfaces include grass, pavement, gravel track and muddy footpaths.

For those of you familiar with the town the route will follow Micheldever Road to the Recreation ground before heading behind the back of Whitchurch Primary School following the River Test to the Hangings. From there it goes to Southfield Farm crossing Micheldever Road before making it's way behind Testbourne's playing fields back onto the School grounds to finish (if you're doing 5k, for those on the 10k you'll have had so much fun the first time around you'll want to do it all again!)

A water station will be positioned at the end of the first loop for the 10k runners.
