Bridport Marathon, Half Marathon and 10km

Next Race: 28/03/2021

BRIDPORT MARATHON,  HALF MARATHON AND 10 km:

We have added a tough Marathon distance for 2021, which will test even the hardiest of runners, along with the original Bridport Half marathon and 10km routes which will start and finish at St Mary's field in the football club on the western edge of Bridport.


Registration is at the football club, as is parking for most cars, overflow parking is in various other car parks around the town, all of which are within 500m of registration and the start.

The route will be open to traffic, however there are plenty of wide pavements, quite roads and cycle-paths to run on also with plenty of marshals around the course, the run is a safe, scenic route around Bridport town and surrounding villages.

 

ABOUT THE ROUTE:

Dependent on your route choice will depend on how much of a test you will have,

The Marathon route is a test at 565m of climbing and should not be taken lightly, its a mix of rolling hills and fast flat sections.

The half marathon has a couple of tough hills but also includeds many flat, fast sections.

The 10km has just one hill, and could be a fast 10km.

Other than the hills it’s a mix of flat fast open running, including some running through the town, however there are plenty of wide pavements, quiet roads and cycle-paths to run on.

We cant promise a PB but we can promise a run in the beautiful Dorset countryside.

All the routes will be open to traffic.

This is a small local run, it is a very welcoming, just come and enjoy a run and grab a nice medal as a reward.
