Now in its eighth year, with a reputation established as one of the most testing yet enjoyable sportive courses in the south, the HHH achieves the seemingly impossible by providing 100 miles of near traffic-free sportive cycling through unspoiled countryside, taking in a variety of challenging climbs - from drags to short sharp shocks to big hills, adding up to more than 2000m of both ascending and descending. For 2013, th e HHH is hosted once more by Sparsholt College near Winchester, with its extensive parking and modern onsite facilities. Some course adjustments promise to make this the hilliest Hilly yet!

Variety is also a great feature of the HHH, as there are some superb descents and some rolling sections too. There is also a shorter course, which trims off the top of the long route, reducing the challenge to a mere 76 miles. Friendly, well-stocked feed stations, handing out the famous HHH flapjacks along with other energy food, are located just where riders need them.

Over the full 100 miles of its Super-Max route, the Hampshire Hilly Hundred features no less than 20 climbs. Cleverly spacing out its hills, the HHH presents a succession of stiff challenges allowing sufficient time between them for recovery. For 2013, the start/finish returns to Sparsholt College near Winchester, but all the climbs on this demanding chalk downs course are retained, including the 1.65-mile climb of Beacon Hill.

Riders may reduce their days mileage, to the Midi distance of approximately 76 miles, using a shortcut that rejoins the primary course, enabling all participants, no matter which distance they choose, to share the same roads for most of the way.
