The race headquarters will be at the sports field just to the West of the village of South Harting on the B2146 Petersfield to Chichester road, nearest post code: GU31 5QA. 

The race start will be a approximate 5 minute walk away: turn left out of the sports field, up the main road and at the top take the lane on the left.

The route will be way marked and marshalled at key points. There will be three water stations and every mile will be marked.
