Following the success of 2016’s New Forest Marathon, we are encouraging friends to “Run for Lisa’’ again to raise money for The Lisa Wilson Scholarship Fund. This year’s event takes place on Sunday 10th September at the New Park Showground, Brockenhurst.
There are several events to participate in, from a family forest walk to a full marathon, and there is even a kids’ run. Visit www.newforestmarathon.co.uk for the details of each event. This is a really great family day out, with various stalls, music, and entertainment. SES Autoparts will be sponsoring the ‘Team Challenge’ for teams of four people in any of the events, and we are also able to offer you a discount on your entry fee. (See below for details)
The New Forest is one of the most beautiful locations in the UK. The multi-terrain courses offer some of the most scenic running experiences in the country, with a blend of forest enclosures, open roads, far reaching views and of course, the famous New Forest ponies!
Last year’s event was a great success, raising over £2000 for the charity. There were over 4000 entries in the various events with a few members of the Wilson family also running – Ross in the 10k run and Kelly, Riley and Aimee in the 5k event.
DISCOUNTED ENTRY FEES

You have plenty of time to train, or get a team together if you want; it’s good to keep fit and you can support a great cause too. We sincerely hope you will be able to make it on the day.
And if you can’t, why not simply make a donation to the charity? You can donate here.
Thanks for your support!
Clive and Trish Wilson
