You can collect it on the morning of the race.  Collection will open at 8.30 am and close at 10.50am.  Do allow lots of time to get to us at New Park.  Summer traffic through Lyndhurst is often very slow.

No, sorry. We will be allocating numbers a few days before the race. Time constraints won’t allow us to publish numbers ahead of time.

This year we’ve decided that we won’t be offering team prizes.  Perhaps we’ll be able to do it next year.

You’ll receive an automated confirmation email from us as soon as your entry is received.  Final race instructions will be sent out during the 2 weeks before the race, by email.  Also, keep checking our Facebook page www.facebook.com/Newforest10/

No, sorry.  All the shorter events are entry on the day only though. We’ll be holding a children’s ½ mile race; mile race and a 3 mile fun run for over 14s (including adults).

The last date for entries is Sunday 30th June, but do enter early.  In previous years we have filled all the places really quickly.

We aren’t selling T-Shirts this year.  Maybe next year…..

Well, it’s a running race.  We will have a sweeper, but because of road closures you’ll have to be at the 6 mile point 1 hour and 15 minutes after the start.  In previous years all runners have managed well, but you can’t walk the whole course.

Yes, because of road closures we have a cut off.  Don’t worry though, our sweeper will guide you round safely.  You’ll have 2 ½ hours to complete the 10 miles.  Although we have to open roads after 1 ¼ hours, most of you will have passed the road section by then.

Over 16 years only in the 10 mile race, but we’ll be holding a ½ mile fun run for under 10s; a 1 mile fun run for under 14s and a 3k fun run for children over 14 and adults.  These events are entry on the day only and won’t be chip timed.

We follow UKA rules.  You have to be 16 years or older on the day of the 10 mile event.

Yes.  We’ll publish results on our web page as soon after the race as we can.

Yes, we’ll have three.  At mile 2 ½, mile 4 ½ and mile 7 ½ .

The joy of an organised, well marshalled, beautiful event through the heart of the New Forest.  You’ll also get an original medal, a goody bag and free race photographs.

No, sorry but our emergency First Aid cover won’t allow for small people in buggies.

No, sorry.

We follow UK Athletics rules and ask you to do the same.  Although our roads are fully closed to traffic, you’re going to need to hear other runners and / or forest animals  coming up behind you.  We close the roads to motor vehicles but not cyclists, you’ll need to hear them too.  Bone conductor headphones only please – for your own safety.

Yes! Please email our Chief Marshal Mike at mike.southwell@btinternet.com

That’s up to you.  We are a non-profit event and will be giving a percentage of any left over money to a charity.  We haven’t decided which one(s) yet, but they are usually local and connected to those that have helped the New Forest Runners over the year.

You can find them on our Facebook page after the race.  They’ll also be available on our web page.

Road shoes should do it, but it depends on weather conditions.  Our forest paths are gravel so you might want something more sturdy, like an all-terrain shoe.  Check our Facebook page for advice closer to the time.

Yes, lots and it’s FREE!
