Following on from a successful 2017 season, Richard and Joanne are pleased to be able to confirm the following event dates for the next 12 months.

Breamore 5 and 10k Trail Runs will take place on October 29th. This and the ever popular Downton Half Marathon (November 26th) will be run in partnership with Downton Leisure Centre and its growing Running Club.

Triathlons 2018

The first race date of the year will be on May 6th. Returning to its original slot in the programme as a great season opener, the day will see both Standard and Novice/Sprint Distance Triathlons, along with a Duathlon, taking place at Ellingham/Moyles Court near Ringwood.

Next up is SwashBuckler Middle Distance is on May 20th: entries are open and already filling fast, so don’t delay if you don’t want to miss out one of the most spectacular events in the calendar.

June 17th will see a repeat of the May 6th programme, again at Ellingham before the Bucklers Hard Sprint and Standard events on July 8th offer those preferring the shorter distances the opportunity to compete out of one of the countries most spectacular race venues at Bucklers Hard.

Sadly, neither Gladiator (Bucklers Hard) nor ForestMan (Ellingham), will be in the programme this year due to the low numbers for these non-branded Full Distance Triathlons. We are open to the possibility of putting on one final ForestMan the following year in 2019 subject to demand.

By way of contrast the New Forest Middle Distance Tri, like SwashBuckler, continues to go from strength and along with further Standard and Sprint Triathlons  will round off the season on Sept 2nd.

Entries for all the events are now live. See www.racenewforest.co.uk for more details.
