Hankley Common

Update – 21st November.

******

Sorry, under the terms of our licence for land use, this is a NO DOGS event.

The Entry List is at SI Entries

For this year’s OK Nuts Trophy we’re returning to Hankley Common, South-West Surrey. It’s a contoured, fast, runnable forest (mixed woodland) with open heathland that has been used for the OK Nuts several times previously, although it has not been used recently. The most recent map on our Routegadget site is from 2011.



The map has been extensively revised for this event by Dave Peel, and incorporates Lidar data.

The races are the 2019 South-East Long Distance Championships.

The event is also hosting the Royal Logistics Corps Championships.

There’s the full range of South-East league courses – twelve of them from very long (over 12km) and technical through to short and only modestly technical – we hope there’s a suitable challenge for everyone from newcomer to expert and all the family.

And as you may know the land is the historic site of James Bond’s family home, Skyfall Lodge. See, for example, https://www.flickr.com/photos/vauxhalluk/6987773697/in/dateposted/

Hankley has been much used for filming: this year it has been used for the forthcoming films “1917”(Sam Mendes) and “Black Widow” (Cate Shortland).

Another historic feature on the land is a section of “Atlantic Wall”, constructed over 75 years ago for training for Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of France in 1944.
