The Allan King Way (King's Way) long-distance footpath was created by the Hampshire Area of the Ramblers' Association as a memorial to the late Allan King. He was a former Publicity Officer who was very well respected and it was he who was partly responsible for the formation of a number of Rambler's Groups in Hampshire. The route runs from Portchester to Winchester via Bishops Waltham and passes by sites such as Portchester Castle, Fort Nelson and Bishops Waltham Palace The footpath is waymarked by metal and plastic disks found attached to wooden and metal posts, trees and street furniture. These are green diamond logos and are inscribed with the words Allan Kings Way.
As a run this will be the first along the Allan King Way and as a tribute to Allan King, we will be donating money from the profits of this race to The Ramblers Association.
There will be an optional overnight stay along the route, with a barbecue and social evening included.
The exact direction of the race is yet to be decided, as we may offer optional coach travel to the Start in Winchester, with the finish at Portchester Castle.
