This is a gorgeous run in Milford-On-Sea, a village on the Hampshire coast known for Hurst Castle & Keyhaven Marshes. Starting at the beach near the car park, there’s a paved promenade that then turns to gravel, running east along the English Channel for 2.5 miles to Hurst Castle, which lies at the end of a dramatic spit. Explore the paths around this large fortress. Retrace your steps for 1 mile to Kinger’s Rocks at Saltgrass Ln. Here, you can return to the start or explore the marshes.
