Event summary

Your organiser

Rural Running Limited, formed in October 2016, is a small, family business, run by me, Jeff Clark, my wife Michelle, and Laura Clark, who has recently joined us. As a recent convert to running, and having formerly been reluctant to run a bath, let alone a marathon, I think I know what the average runner wants from an event. If you are looking for a race where you can hide among 1000’s of other competitors, with bells and whistles, then this site is not for you! Our runs are all fairly small, and are aimed at all abilities. However, our runs are also planned with the serious runner in mind. Over the past months we have invested in a chip timing system, meaning even the most competitive runner can be assured of an accurate time. We have gained a reputation for providing ‘intimate’ friendly events, with all our runners providing the encouragement and support we all sometimes need! Importantly, we have also gained a reputation for our medals, which have become legendary! As a company, we are committed to support both local, and national charities, making significant donations from the proceeds from every one of our races. We believe our 2017 diary of races contains something for everything, with road runs, and mixed terrain and trail events.

Did the Southcoast 50 in 2020
First experience of an ultra marathon which was very challenging but this route was poorly signposted and relied heavily on following a map that was printed on A5 in very small writing!! A lot of people got lost and a group managed to get across the finish line the wrong way round. We even had to cross a dual carriageway (A27) at one point feeling completely lost. Trying to keep up with runners ahead also proved unsuccessful when they also took the wrong turn. The volunteers were in very good spirits which helped boost the atmosphere but having the run clearly marked out would have made it 100x easier. The run is only on the coast for a few miles with beach and sea views as well as a good view from the top of the hill in Portsmouth but the run is predominantly through the villages. If you know the area and you can orienteer then you may enjoy this more!!… read more
