A FULL entry list will take to the starting line for tomorrow’s Meon Valley Plod.

The 20.3-mile multi-terrain race will see around 420 competitors tackle the punishing cross-country course, which starts at the Sustainability Centre in East Meon at 10.30am and scales the heights of Butser Hill.

The Portsmouth Joggers-organised race, now in its 14th year, has become hugely popular and filled up its subscription last month.

Joint-organiser Sharon Le Roy is excited ahead of the race and is braced for more tricky weather conditions.

She said: ‘Last year was dubbed the wettest ever, with more than 100 participants not finishing the course.

‘This year cannot be any worse than that. But it just wouldn’t be the Plod without the mud!’

Last year’s race was won by Denmead Striders’ Nick Baker, while the first lady home was Rebecca Black.
