What you need to know

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!

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a brand new, closed road, central London run. It is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster and the first event will take place on the 23 March 2019.

The event is not your average half marathon! From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city's quirky and hidden secrets, runners will get to explore the capital on a route like no other!

10,000 runners will start on Pall Mall, finish by Downing Street and have fabulous views of Londons most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Pauls Cathedral, Nelsons Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.

The event will also deliver a pan-London community engagement programme and involve London wide schools, boroughs, community groups, cultural organisations, sports clubs and businesses in developing the event and on the day.

The event is owned by baby charity, Tommy's who came up with the idea in 2014. Tommy's are delighted to be launching this exciting new event with the support of Westminster City Council and the City of London Corporation.
