BRIDPORT HALF MARATHON AND 10 km:
Registration is at Bridport 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.
New routes for 2022, incorporating more of Bridport town itself but keeping the flatter parts of previous years running.
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 Half marathon has a couple of tough hills but also includes many flat, fast sections.
The 10km has just one hill and could be a fast 10km.
Other than the hills it is a mix of flat fast open running, including running through the town, however there are plenty of wide pavements, quiet roads, and cycle-paths to run on.
We cannot 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.
