Go down to the bottom and at T-junction turn right and after about a mile turn right signed Walderton & Stoughton. Once past through both villages at the sharp left-hand bend the Forestry Commission car park is on the right.

Distances 10k, 6.5k and if anyone does not want to run up a steep hill near the end 5.5k. The last one is along the road to the car park instead of up and down big hills. All participants run at own risk and must report in and out to the Trail Organiser. Enjoy!

PS:

Thanks to Jan for laying the trail last Sunday from Charlton Mill and whilst the 40 runners fared better Jan encountered some awful weather whilst laying the course. 

Remember the additional parkrun at Oaklands Park (9:00 am) on Christmas Day morning.

Good luck to everyone running over the next weekend to include on Sunday the epic and challenging Portsmouth Coastal Run Fest. Do let John have a note of your race results please.   

Festive greetings to all.
