At Alice Holt Forest, Farnham in Hampshire, we will be using an undercover area for the registration centre which will be right next to the start and finish. The visitors centre, café and toilets are less than a minutes walk away.
There is a choice of two courses, 3.4 miles or 6.8 miles and you don't need to decide when entering. If after the first lap you decide you want to continue, just head through the start to commence the second lap.
Amount of Climb
3.4 or 6.8
The events will be held at Alice Holt Forest near Farnham. Please use the postcode GU10 4LS and follow the signs off A325 to the main parking area. Alongside this event there are plenty of activities available including the Gruffalo Spotters Trail, Timberline Play Trail, the Habitat Trail, Family Cycle Trail and Go Ape.
You can start anytime between 09.30am and 11.30am, so once registered and ready, just turn up and follow the instructions from the start official. Just don’t forgot your SI-Card as you’ll need this to start. If anyone wants to start in a wave then competitors are more than welcome to meet in the start area to go off at 09.30, 10.00, 10.30, 11.00 and 11.30
There is no designated parking area for the event so just choose a parking space where available. Alice Holt can accommodate over 500 cars so there will be plenty of spaces close to the visitor centre. Unless you have a Discovery Pass, you will need to pay for your parking when you decide to leave. As the parking is per hour, with a fixed price of £8 for over 4 hours, there is no need to worry when your ticket will expire.
We will be using the SPORTident timing system which basically consists of two pieces of equipment, a SPORTident station, which will be at the start, nappy changing tent and finish and a SI-Card which is attached to your finger. The station records the time when the SI-Card is dipped into the hole in the station. A memory chip in the SI-Card stores information about each station visited. After finishing you then download this SI-Card and your individual result will be available soon after.
Finish and Prizes
When you reach the finish, which is immediately next to the registration area and visitors centre, just visit the registration desk where you must hand back the SI-Card. You will also receive a print-out of your time and real-time results will hopefully also be available. You will also receive two medals, certificate and a sticker set for finishing the course. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st male and female competitors on each course.
We’ll be using an undercover area directly opposite the Visitors Centre, being less than a minutes’ walk. Please follow the orange signs from outside the cafe which will direct you to the registration area. There will be a gazebo alongside the registration area for parking your buggy and the start and finish will also be immediately next to registration. When you arrive, please visit the registration desk where you can collect your race number and the specialist timing device called an SI-Card. Once registered and ready to run just head straight to the start which will be immediately next to the registration area.
