The Purbeck Running Festival - Ultra, Marathon, 16 Mile, 10K & 5K routes
The Purbeck Running Festival is part of the Purbeck Weekend Challenge and takes place on the stunning Jurassic Coast, with its epic landscape and views.
The festival consists of four races of varying distances, which are detailed below:
45 Mile Ultra: The most challenging of courses, the ultra takes place early morning on the Saturday. It follows a similar route to the Marathon, with athletes often having to tackle tough ascents and uneven paths.
27 Mile Marathon: The Purbeck Marathon is nearer to 27 miles than the usual 26.2. It starts and finishes in Swanage, with the first stage running along the coastal path before heading through the deserted village of Tyneham. A world away from a city marathon, this course is arguable one of the most scenic marathon routes in the world.
There is a strict cut-off time of 7 hours for the marathon.
16 Mile: The Purbeck 16 is a staple event of the festival and still provides a considerable challenge. With scenery equally that of the above races, this is the perfect event for those still looking for a significant challenge but who are not quite ready for the marathon or ultra formats.
5K & 10K: The shortest format of the weekend, these events provide the ideal opportunity for those who are new to off-road racing and looking to get involved. The majority of these races will take place on the coastal path and behold similarly spectacular views.
