Purbeck-Marathon-2012-168

The Purbeck 16

Date & Location

Swanage, Dorset

Organiser’s Description

The Purbeck 16 is a great step up from a half marathon. 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. The route then picks returns to the hill Ridgeway and heads towards Swanage to finish on the seafront. The entire route has spectacular views which will help to combat fatigue. With a number of hard climbs and uneven paths it is nothing like running a normal road based race! Proceeds will be distributed to local charities.
