The LDWA New Forest Challenge - Sunday 28 February 2016

This is a walker's event which welcomes well-behaved runners.  There are 19 mile and 26 mile options.  The routes are scenic and the organisation is good so this event is popular with Hardley members. You can read more on the Wessex LDWA website.

Paul Blundell writes, "A brief report of a pleasant day out.  I along with Alice Ryder, Rachel Clark, Abbi Naylor and Tam Ryan from Romsey ran the New forest Challenge in around 6 hours. I also saw Ron Godden at the start finish with some friends.

We planned a slowish social run and that's what we did, weather was cloudy bright but cold in the wind.  Abbi and Rachel practiced their map reading skills and even provided some scenic alternatives. Organisation was to the LDWA's usual high standards and the course was muddy in places but generally pretty good.  The last checkpoint was particularly well stocked with cake; I'm sure I put on weight on these runs.  A very nice sausage casserole awaited us when we got in."
