What you need to know about Running

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

More Than A Marathon
More Than A Half

Swanage, Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast has spectacular history, landscapes and views and has been home to The Purbeck Marathon for the last three years and now we have The Purbeck 16! A step up from a half marathon with the same fantastic scenery and big hills!

The Purbeck Marathon takes place in Swanage, Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast which has spectacular history, landscapes and views. The course, with around 3,000 feet of climbs provides a predominately off-road marathon that is both challenging and rewarding.

Please note that this is more than just a marathon in more ways than one!

The course is closer to 27 miles rather than the conventional 26.2. Dont worry, the extra mile is the easiest bit of the course!

The Purbeck 16 is actually more than 16 miles and is in fact closer to 16.5 miles and is a great step up from a half marathon.

The Purbeck 16 starts and finishes in Swanage. From the Downs overlooking the beach, it heads towards Durlston Country Park and along the Jurassic coast path before going through the villages of Worth Matravers and Kingston. This is where the route separates from the Marathon and cuts across heathland towards Corfe Castle and meets up with the Marathon Route on the common.
