25th June 2023
Welcome to the newest and one of the south’s most picturesque 10k’s based at the beautiful Exbury Gardens in the New Forest. Your run, on this flat/undulating course, starts in the stunning gardens and takes you through glorious countryside to the scenic Lepe beach with panoramic views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. You will then continue your journey back to the finish in Exbury Gardens.
All runners will receive a t-shirt and medal and we have agreed with Exbury that all runners get FREE entry into the stunning gardens after their run – so why not plan a summer picnic or coffee and cake to celebrate your achievement and make some unique running memories.
We are thrilled to have been given special permission by Exbury to stage the event in June, one of their most most popular months for visitors. In partnership with Hardley Runners and the many local community groups and organisations who help us to stage the event, we are delighted to welcome you to Hampshire’s newest and most picturesque 10k in June 2023.
