Fab to be back to events and great camaraderie from runners, but unfortunately not one i would recommend. There must be a better way to make up 10k distance than running over a massive hill around a field 3 times at the start?! No chip timing, not very organised registration, toilet situation was a bit of a joke, its a shame as the weymouth seafront bit is a lovely place to run and could be a great PB race if they sorted the route out! Poor medal too - expensive given no goody bag or chips.

Really disappointed with this event. The planning / organisation was appalling - instructions stated toilets were in hotel, hotel stated runners shouldn't use their toilets, no instruction or direction to start line, numerous runners walking around in circles, no bag drop and finish line a mile away from hotel / car park, meaning a shivering walk back, the medal doesn't even mention Weymouth, just an MCC Run Series, and 4 days after the race, still no results. I've emailled and no response. No Facebook / website updates, no photos, no news, just radio silence.

Sorry Weymouth you were terrible, the worst race that I have done. Fly tipping in car park, Poorly organised registration, long disorganised internal hotel queues for toilets. Lack of direction to start. Very few mile/ KM markers. I'm not sure Weymouth even knew we were there, with the general publics lack of enthusiasm. Generic MCC medal and race number printed bib, that does not even have the word "Weymouth" on it,. No record of the fact I have been in Weymouth. 3 Days later no online race times even though I've sent 2 emails. Organisers need to view other local races to see how it's done! I'm surprised " Lets do this" put their name to this one- needs investigation

Good fun race, tough course in the first mile... But dig in and get rewarded with nice and flat and fast afterwards (wind dependent as its along the sea front!). Nice small race.
4.0Did the 10k in 2021
The beginning, well it is challenging especially as this year it was very windy. The rest of the course is flat and along the seafront. Lots of support from the general public. Plan to do it again next year and hope for kinder weather for the start! 😃

The worst race I've ever entered.The course involved laps of a field followed by a there and back along the seafront.On finishing I was presented with an awful t-shirt and the world's worst medal. I've seen better medals at school sports day and fun runs.Avoid unless you enjoy disappointment!
Did the 10k in 2017
It was well organised although it was the first 10k Ive done where I had to avoid members of the public.

Brilliant race with great views! Registration area was far too small for 300 odd runners but other than that well organised

course - venue postcode needed to be more obvious, no online course map, first 1km+ was unexpectedly up and down a steep grassy undulating hill organisation - parking was a shambles really, bib numbers slow & chaotic, no signs to say where registration was, mo start line, no loud hailer, flat course was good though, marshallling good, no discernable finish line, no notice of what queue at finish was for, no timing given, distance was actually 6.4 miles (this isn't unusual on races I admit, medal and tee-shirt handout was very slow (it helps if tee-shirt size is already on your race number) atmosphere - yellow weather waning but if cancelled on day I suspect no information on cancellation would get transmitted to runners before travelling to venu Price was quite good at 15 and I hope the charity got something from this - thanks
2.3Did the 10k in 2019
The organisation of this event was a joke! Nobody new where the start was, no signage, most people thought the finish would be where we started from, Not!! I asked a Marshall on route where or if there was a water stop, they had no idea. Great venue for a run,poorly executed. Not good value.

I read in the Beacon that there was a walking category for the half marathon but cannot see this option online. Can you please confirm.
Hi there, Just to let you know that you are welcome to walk the half marathon and you can just enter the normal way on the event page above. For the purposes of traffic management timeframes and marshal safety the maximum allowable time to complete the Sun to Surf Half Marathon is 5 hours. As the event will start at 3pm this will mean all runners and walkers need to be finished by 8pm. Best of luck!
This is the first time I have entered something like this. How serious do people take it? Is it open to all abilities or mainly for competitive runners!
Hi there. Just to let you know that these runs are open to anyone of all abilities and there is usually a big mix between people who take it super competitively and people who are just hoping to complete the race without even looking at their time at the end. Best of luck!
