Route Description & Trackfiles - Post Event

This page provided links to the final route description documents for the main walk, but these are now suitably amended for use by anyone who wishes to walk on the route as the post event route description to avoid using short sections on private land where permission was given for the event day only. Note that Belmont School that was a checkpoint on the event is private land and there is no access for walkers. Also below are related final digital mapping trackfiles and a checkpoint summary, supporters' notes and a list of entrants' names. There is a separate Route Narrative document with interest information and a separate route image gallery page. A final amendments and update sheet issued just before the main walk is also available below.

The final amendments and updates sheet was issued and is available for download below. This was available at Gainsborough School for all entrants in printed form before the event start on 2 June.

The post event version, 4b, of the route description for the main event is below for printing by recreational walkers. There are differences from any previous versions and walkers must now use this post event version, 4b.

Walkers may only pass through Windsor Great Park in daytime; the Park is closed to pedestrians during the hours of darkness. If you need advice on the Park opening hours, or plan to take a group of walkers into the Park for which permission is always needed, please contact the Crown Estate at Windsor Great Park (contact information can be found on the Crown Estate websites). The post event route description includes an alternative night route around the Great Park mainly on roads. It includes the timings for the night closures of Windsor Great Park that applied to the event date in 2012 only, following a timings test on the Marshals Walk. These were regulated by the departure time from the Sunningdale checkpoint, and were as follows: For check point departures from the Sunningdale checkpoint (CP16 at 92.2 miles) after 1900 hours on Sunday and before 0330 hours on Monday Windsor Great Park is closed and the alternative route will operate. For check point departures before 1900 hours on Sunday and after 0330 hours on Monday Windsor Great Park is open. Entrants may also rest at the checkpoints in order to use the Great Park day route at dawn. These times were specific to the event in June 2012.

The event trackfiles have also been reissued below as post event versions 12k. These match the route description 4b. To overcome the memory limits of some GPS devices, as before, the track has been split into two sections: WV12kMainA and WV12kMainB.  No track file is provided for the night route around the Great Park - this is mainly on roads, so not likely to be used post-event. 

Note that these post route description and track files do not show the permissive routes at Beddlestead House, Belmont School and Clandon Park.

In addition a table of checkpoint distances, groups, opening and closing times and ascents between checkpoints is below together with Supporters' Notes that cover car parking and access to checkpoints - see note above about Belmont School. A simple list of entrants' names and walk numbers is provided online below (names have been withheld where requested).

If printing multipage or illustrated documents please consider using the booklet option in your printer driver if it offers one. Using this with A5 page sizes and double sided printing used a quarter of the paper and ink of normal single sided printing.

This webpage has a different page ID (URL) to the previous version and the page title includes 'Post Event', so if you are bookmarking these pages please replace the previous bookmark. The previous version was /1921/.
