The Solent Half is our half marathon held in the Autumn.  The event has been going for over 30 years.  It is a friendly race with up to 500 entries and a lovely course winding through the New Forest around Exbury and along the Solent shore at Lepe.

Thank you very much to everyone: organisers, marshals, runners and supporters, who made this year's race a great success despite the adverse weather.

Head marshal, Judy Bannister, says, "Thank you all for turning out early on a very wet and windy morning, at least one of you from your sick bed, to give lots of encouragement to the runners, it was very much appreciated by them. The half marathon could not take place with out you. 

If you have any comments to improve next year please pass them on to me. 

Thank you, see you all next year."
