Last weekend was just perfect for running and enjoying the outdoors; many RRRs did just that.
The Clarendon Marathon, stretching from Salisbury to Winchester, using as the name suggests, the off road Clarendon Way to transverse across from Wiltshire to Hampshire. Runners were afforded some stunning long views as they negotiate the undulating route. The half way point is Broughton in Test Valley, Where the half marathon starts. There is also the option of a marathon relay.

Both Mark and Sue took a wrong turn at Broughton and had to cover an extra
0.4 of a mile.
