Queen Elizabeth off road Half Marathon Run

28th November 2021

Be a local hero and take on the ultimate trail runs through the beautiful South Downs National park

Starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, which is a large country park situated on the South Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is conveniently located on the A3 south of Petersfield, Hampshire. 

This amazing early season trail run has it all, spectacular tree lined trails, magnificent views and sturdy trails which are a pleasure to run on. 

The route starts and finishes in QECP exploring its hard packed off road trail network. The Epic and Standard routes head out of the park where you’ll enjoy running through the ancient woodland at ‘Head Down’ before reaching the iconic South Downs Way. From here both routes loop back to the park via the famous local trail called the ‘Milky Way’. 

Back in the Park all 3 routes combine together to explore ‘War Down’ which boasts weatherproof, tree lined gravel tracks. You will get a real sense of being at one with Nature and allowing your mind to wonder whilst your legs clock up the kilometres.   

What better place to experience trail running than with a course that allows you to experience multiple terrains and overloads your senses with such a variety of incredible views. Regardless of experience or ability, we actively encourage new runners to our events and have 3 route lengths to choose from: Epic (21km), Standard (15km) and Short (9km).

At the finish you will receive a well-deserved medal, protein bar, pair of running socks and neck buff. Catering will also be available to top up the energy stores.

If you have registered already with UK Running Events then all you need to do is set up your sponsorship page to join #TeamWilf. We will then get in touch about your free t-shirt!

Join #teamwilf and every kilometer you run and every penny you raise will help us continue supporting families with first class care.

Bev said, “Having St Wilfrid’s those last two days made all the difference. We can actually remember our last shared laugh with Mum – with us riding the stair lift up and down sharing and spilling cups of tea on the way up and down, with mum listening in from her bedroom.  It’s those simple little moments that take you back and you can cherish ever afterward. As sad a time as it was, Mum looked herself more than she had done in the past year; she faced the end without fear.”

As part of #teamwilf you will receive a St Wilfrid’s Hospice vest or t shirt to wear on the day. All you have to do is set up your online sponsorship page or get in touch with us at fundraising@stwh.org.uk
