Event 6 of the Summer Series is based at Knightwood Leisure Centre, Chandler's Ford. Parking at the leisure centre is likely to be busy on a Saturday morning. Please consider using alternative parking behind the local community centre (previously used for club AGMs) a short walk away. Alternatively, the number 46 bus provides a good service to and from Southampton and Winchester, there is a very pleasant 2km walk/cycle/run from Chandler's Ford Railway Station providing connections to Eastleigh or Romsey and beyond. Finally, for those in Southampton running/walking from Southampton is a pleasant option via Lord's Wood and Chilworth.

The Yellow and Orange courses will be confined to the grounds of the leisure centre and the adjacent Zionshill Copse (site of an Iron Age enclosure). The Light Green course will also cross through residential areas in to nearby Knightwood. Although courses will be planned to make the most of the extensive path network, full leg cover is advised on the Light Green course as the vegetation is closing over the smaller paths.
