Based in the New Forest National Park, this is guaranteed to be one of the most beautiful trail events you have ever taken part in! BigSky will start just after sunrise from the viewpoint at Hyde Common, one of the highest points in the New Forest National Park. As dawn becomes day and your race begins, you’ll set off under a dome of Southern England sky, with views that stretch from horizon to horizon. You’ll navigate wide open plains and winding forest trails and be in awe of the abundant wildlife roaming free. The relaxed, friendly atmosphere at this event, is truly exceptional. Numbers are very limited due to the nature of the course and we wouldn’t want it any other way! We have new routes this year, which take you to beautiful little-known parts of the spectacular New Forest. There are 2 distances, 18 miles and marathon, each a fantastic challenge! BigSky is part of our Classic Element Trail Run Series, symbolizing the classic element Air! The series consists of four trail running events based on the 4 classic elements….Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Whether it’s running under never-ending sky (Air), battling over ancient rugged coastline (Water), Pushing yourself on under a relentless sun (Fire) or clawing over muddy hills and rainy valleys (Earth), BigFeat Events have developed a series of races, BigMud, BigSea, BigHeat and BigSky, that will Challenge you, Awaken you and Inspire you! BigSky is fully marked and marshalled, with 2 aid stations for the 18 mile route and 3 for the marathon. There are also water stations in between. Both routes showcase the best scenery in the New Forest before finishing with a thrilling run along Hampton Ridge back to Hyde Common, where all runners will receive a bespoke event medal and the chance to sit back and look out over the awe-inspiring New Forest National Park.

This event is part of BigSky – New Forest, Hampshire.
