Half 21.1km

The Half marathon is a test in places and not to be taken lightly , starting just next to Marsh barn, 
The route follows the coastal footpath from West Bay to freshwater and on to Burton Bradstcok where we hit the coastal path along the cliff back to West Bay

The first parts of the Half are relatively flat but its the Jurassic coast so at some point its an up and down so it not for those that dont like a challenge..

Repeat twice for the Half

FULL MARATHON 42.2km

 

The marathon will be brutal and not to be taken lightly , starting just next to Marsh barn, in the old pitch and putt gravel area the trail run takes us through the beautiful golf club and onto freshwater its flat for the first 3 km which is where the first Aid station is located, after this we meet our first hill (well there is a little one at the start), its short and sharp.
At the top we get our first glimpse of the sea, before we head for Burton Bradstock's hive beach, through the fields we follow the coastline.
The route follows the coastal footpath the sea is next to us before we link back up with the 10 km route, after the feed this is when the fun really begins, once on the cliff path, you will realise why we have chosen this location, its simply breathtaking, and the views (If there is no mist) are to die for, Its the Jurassic coast at its most superb.

Repeat 4 times in total for the Marathon
