The Run

The run element of the New Forest Rattler Endurance Weekender is a gorgeous run through the beautiful New Forest. Part on the highway and part on trails.

Just like the Ride and Swim, it is a sportive run, designed for enjoyment and personal achievement. You are only racing yourself, don’t worry, it is chip timed and you will get an awesome medal!

We will have a rolling start of small numbers as the road is open and we want to minimise the impact on local people.

You can run up to a marathon if you want to within the 6 allocated hours. A marathon is three laps. The half is an out and back and we have a 10K too!  

On the Day


Registration will be open between 10am and 12pm.


The start time is a rolling start. This means you can choose when you want to start within the allocated times. First start will be shortly after 11:30am and the last start time is 12:30.

Those planning to complete a marathon must start between 11:30 – 12:00

The event cut off time is 6 hours. All runners must be finished before 6pm. Marshals will ask the runner to head to the finish if they believe the runner will not complete a lap and get back to the finish before 6pm.
