Bridport Half Marathon & 10k
Returning for 2021 The Bridport Half marathon and 10k will start and finish at St Mary's field in the football club on the western edge of Bridport.
Dependent on your route choice will depend on how much of a test you will have. The half marathon has a couple of tough hills, and the 10k just one, other than those hills it’s a mix of flat fast sections, including some running through the town, however there are plenty of wide pavements, quiet roads and cycle-paths to run on also, with plenty of marshals around the course. The run is a safe, scenic route around Bridport town. All the routes will be open to traffic.
This is a small local run, it’s a very welcoming and there are no cut offs, just come and enjoy a run and grab a nice medal as a reward.
