new forest marathon

The New Forest Marathon has been the cornerstone of Hampshire running calendar for the past 32 years, raising over £1.27 million for local good causes and attracting thousands of competitors. The nationally recognised marathon has been ranked in the top 10 marathons in the UK for 20 years.

The main routes will start and finish from New Park Showground, Brockenhurst and wind through the heart of the New Forest National Park. The multi terrain courses offer some of the most scenic running experiences in the country with mix of forest enclosures, open roads, far reaching views and of course the famous New Forest ponies.

The New Forest Marathon has always been a local event ran by local people, we are keen to ensure that the trend of giving back to the community continues.

This provides the event with the fantastic stage it deserves to represent the area, with excellent access by road and rail.
