A beautiful towpath trail marathon from Odiham to Sheerwater. The Basingstoke Canal Marathon goes through the Hampshire and Surrey countryside along the tree-lined towpath of the restored 200-year-old canal and through woodland, heathland, wetland and pasture. En route are the Deepcut flight of locks, aqueducts, scenic villages and historic buildings. Nearby stations are Hook, Winchfield, Fleet, Aldershot, Ash, Ash Vale, North Camp, Brookwood, Woking and West Byfleet.
The race will start at the Canal Centre in Odiham. Those that wish can park at the finish and take the optional organised transport from the finish at the Sheerwater Recreation Ground, to the start.
There will be plenty of drinks stations along the route.
Each finisher will get a bespoke themed medal.
