Race HQ for 2019 is at Farnham Leisure Centre. This has been changed from our previous HQ at St. Polycarps Primary School to give us more space. It is an 8 minute walk from Farnham station and 10 minutes from the School so there are no changes to accomodation recommendations. The race itself starts at the trail head of the North Downs Way. Runners will commence the 5 minutes walk down to the race start following the race briefing as we have in the past.The actual race start is a short walk from the school at the start of the NDW trail. Signs will be in place over race weekend indicating the route from registration to the start line.

As you come in to Chilworth from the west you will see a left hand turn in to Blacksmith Lane. If you follow that road until it bends right, it then becomes halfpenny lane. It is single lane and winds up the hill. As you come to the brow of the hill you will see a turn off for the NDW path, then a drive way and then the entrance to the car park on your right.
