Race to the King - South Downs Way Event
Race to the King is a public participation event that is taking place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2017.
Between 700 – 1000 participants are expected to take part in the 53 mile ultra marathon along the South Downs Way, starting at Gaston Farm, Slindon and finishing at Winchester Cathedral. Many people will be raising money for good causes including the event’s charity partner, Save the Children.
Participants will be passing through the Compton area on Saturday 24th June. They will be passing through the area in small groups and should cause minimal disruption. Some of the participants will be staying at the overnight basecamp, located at Hundred Acres Farm, Compton, PO18 9NN, and therefore will be leaving the area on the Sunday morning.
