Overview

The Hampshire Hoppit marathon and half marathon are both trail races, i.e. predominantly off-road. They use routes that will be clearly marked and marshalled, and including local sections of famous long distance footpaths, the Wayfarers Walk and (for the marathon) the Harrow Way. Both are scenic single-lap courses that will start and end at Kingsclere on the Hampshire/Berkshire border, reaching some of the highest points in Hampshire with views across the county. There are occasional quiet road sections or road crossings that will be marshalled. The races will be held under UK Athletics rules.  Every finisher will receive a unique engraved beer glass and a thirst-quenching fill of ‘Hoppit’, a Classic Ale (3.9%AV) from the Loddon Brewery, available from the post-race bar at the Race HQ. The half marathon will receive a half pint engraved glass, and the full marathon will receive a full pint engraved glass. We have not left out the teetotallers as all finishers will also get a special engraved medal to commemorate their fine achievement. There will be prizes for the first finishers, including age category awards. There will be a maximum race cut-off time for the full marathon of 7-hours. Competitors that appear likely to exceed this time limit at (approximately) the 16-mile point will be requested to be withdrawn from the race. There is no race cut-off time for the half marathon. The entry fee for the marathon is £43 affiliated (member of UKA club) or £45 unaffiliated, and for the half marathon is £39 affiliated or £41 unaffiliated. Entry is online only (i.e. there is no postal entry). Competitors must be 18 years old or over on race day.

Very tough hills but absolutely worth it for the beautiful route! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a marathon as much! Loved everything about this race & would recommend it to anyone! Great organisation, route, marshals, aid stations, medal & beer glass (& beer). Only thing...Read full review
