Half Marathon:9:30am |
The run will head out to Symondsbury along West Road, before heading through the beautiful village itself, then onto Broadoak before we head for Salway ash and then back to pymore, being a longer distance there are a few more hills, but once we link up with the 10 km course its back to flat.
Being Dorset we have beautiful villages, wide open spaces and an odd hill, but with no cut off, you can enjoy the day and add that Half marathon to your running repertoire.
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
The 10k 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 kilometres are flat, wide and although not fun at the time, the medal at the end will make you smile.
With water stations at 2.5k and 6.5k, there is nothing for you to do but run.

Lovely route, very scenic, but with it came with some hills! So if youre considering this for 2020 get the Hill training in. I also liked the fact it was a small event so I wasnt surrounded by other runners on the route (Im not antisocial but quite enjoyed this, made a change)!! Hope to see you next year
4.3Did the Half Marathon in 2019
This is the first time Ive done the Bridport half, a very challenging course! Not always clear which way to go, and no organisation at the finish, you just went and collected your medal, no timings or results either.

Such a beautiful course with Lovely friendly helpful team at the start and we both had an amazing event. It was my first half and I loved such a small event. Despite what we say below, we would do it again we are just trying to be helpful to make the event even better. 1) there were no mile markers at all on the course and the marshals we asked did not know how far round the course they were so we were left running quite blind. 2) there were some dangerous crossing points that could have been made better by more obvious signage for cars... at a couple of them I had to come to a complete stop and wait for traffic... not very easy to get going again after a total stop and could have been made easier in lots of ways. 3) no water at the end of the race which, was pretty unforgivable! Thanks, Jemima and Ceri

Very well organised, pre-race talk quick and easy to understand, but most importantly a fun run! Watch out for the steep hill 4.5 k into the race!
5.0Did the 10k in 2019
Would have liked to know there were water stations.
5.0Did the 5k in 2018
All info was spot on before hand.
4.7Did the 10k in 2018
I'm very local so I knew the route beforehand.
4.7Did the 10k in 2018
It was rather unpleasant due to a remarkably hot bank holiday weekend. But amongst that, I really enjoyed the Event, route & thought it was very reasonably priced.

There is a safe place where I can park my car, near the event?
Hi there, the organiser has advised that parking is available in various car parks around the town, all of which are within 500m of registration and the start. I hope you enjoy the event and please reach out if you have any further questions!
Can you just confirm whether the half marathon is starting 9 or 9:30? I’m getting emails saying both!
Hey there, just to let you know that the half marathon starts at 9:30am. All the best!
There's a place where I can leave my bag safely?
I have booked and paid for a half marathon place but, unfortunately, I cannot run. Is the place transferable and if so is there anyone out there who would like it?
