A return of the very popular Bridport 10km & 5km will start and finish at St Mary's field by the football club on the western edge of Bridport.
The route will be open to traffic, however, there are plenty of wide pavements, quiet 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

Half Marathon

New for 2019 will see the longer Half Marathon distance ( 21.1km)

10km
The 10 km route will start in one of the main parks of Bridport, this is to help separate out the runners before heading into the road sections through North Allington and onto the flat of St Swithens and Pymore, after which is a very small hill (the only one) which takes us over Dodham's lane.

The run from here follows wide cycle-paths and is a flat speedy affair, which will take you through one of the fastest run sections in Bridport "Barrack street", a great place to have friends and family cheer you on, as its a glut of coffee shops, also it gives them enough time to walk back to the finish, to watch as you cross the finish line.

The final KM are flat, wide and although not fun at the time, the medal at the end will make you smile.

With water stations at 2.5 km and 6.5 km, there is nothing for you to do but run.

5km
The 5 km run will also start and finish at St Mary's, it will head out towards the football club and then will follow the quieter roads around the town.

Because we want to encourage as many people to run as possible (Including children) its a nice safe easy two 2.5 km laps, on wide pavements, or through parks (Paths and cycle ways), so super safe. Great for kids and adults that just are not quite ready for the bigger distance.

The organising team would like to wish you best of luck and promise that we will do everything we can to make this race the most enjoyable one you have entered this year.

If you only enter one half marathon this year, make it the Manchester Half Marathon.

One of the flattest and fastest around. The only 41m of elevation gain and a 2 mile + finishing straight, we expect to see some very fast times here.

Great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club, plus a medal and a technical t-shirt for all finishers!

To give you an idea of how fast this course is, 74% of the first 50 finishers ran a personal best or a season best. 56% of the top 250 ran a PB or SB. This is your half marathon to literally smash it!

A return of the popular powder fun from 2016 and 2017, gets entrants covered from head to toe in a variety of colours at various points of the course. Oh, and did we mention it's not even a run? You can choose to walk, skip or hop your way around if you feel like it. Its all about the fun and what gives you the biggest smiles!

It's not timed or really a proper run, its more for fun and we would encourage you to raise money for local charities, charities that normally don't have large-scale donations. So not only will you have great fun, get a really cool medal but you can help local good causes as well!

A return of the bouncy castle, face painting, food and drink, Its going to be a fun packed day, we strongly encourage you to bring blanket and just chill in the sun, hopefully it will build into another great community event, with your help that is.

Please share the event via social media, and lets make it a great event.
