The multi terrain courses offer some of the most scenic running experiences in the country with mix of forest enclosures, open roads, far reaching views and of course the famous New Forest ponies.   The New Forest Marathon has always been a local event ran by local people, we are keen to support this community spirited event!   Since 2015 the event has been hosted at New Park Showground in the heart of the New Forest.
