Event Overview

 As you'd expect from its name, the HHH has plenty of hills, from long and steady to short and steep. Yet, the course is not entirely relentless - there are stretches where you can enjoy spinning a bigger gear. Rest assured, there are no impossible 'cliff-face' climbs - though, last year, a few riders did dismount on the steepest section of newly-introduced Butser Hill. The HHH does indeed catch out those who underestimate it, as it delivers more metres of ascent and descent than most UK sportives. Preparation is definitely required for this one.
We are delighted to be based once more at Sparsholt College, near Winchester, with its excellent facilities, including on-site parking close to the Start/Finish, hot refreshments, lounge area, showers and changing rooms. We provide Third Party event insurance, first-aid and medical cover, full route signage, printed route directions, feed stations, mat timing, mechanical assistance, on-course photographer, and much more.


Info for Riders

Now in its 9th year, the Hampshire Hilly Hundred is one of the senior UK cyclosportives. It remains an event organised by cyclists for cyclists, pure and simple. The course has been refined over consecutive seasons and offers the super challenging HHH SuperMax route (approx 100 miles), and the still testing HHH Midi (approx 78 miles). The well signed and equally well thought-out course follows roads with amazingly little traffic and leads riders through some superb Hampshire countryside that is at its very best in early May.
