A treat for trail enthusiasts. Covering 10 miles, our route offers superb views and a testing hills that will get your adrenaline pumping.

From the start line, wide gravel tracks and a canopy-covered section lead you North toward Breach Farm. Enter Furzedown Wood for a stretch of single-track with stunning views towards Winchester and the South Downs.

Enjoy the downhill stretch into Brown Candover, a section of the Oxdrove Way and before heading into private land of Chilton Manor Farm, embracing the contours of Juniper Hill.

Finish strong with the ultimate home straight that fills you with a sense of accomplishment. You’ll see and maybe hear the finish line, a 1-mile tree lined finish.

A small scale friendly event which I would highly recommend. Helen P

It was a wonderful event, really well organised. Obvious how much effort went into the event planning. Facilities were excellent. Darren M

Brilliant event. Really well set up and supported. Marshals were really supportive and helpful. Loved the eco friendly vibe too. Can't wait for the next one! Jo B

It’s not just about the finish line with the Blended Trails runs, the whole event is rewarding, from the locations to the atmosphere. Having done a few of them now I can honestly say I look forward to every race they put on, the routes are always well marked and if you like a challenge, then there always a hill or two to climb. Darren G

It was my first 10K run and first canicross, it was brilliantly organised and the marshalls round the course were very supportive and encouraging. Great event. Thank you for organising. Victoria R

Would recommend this to anyone I would definitely come back and I’m looking forward to seeing what they are going to put on next πŸ‘πŸ‘ Frank J
